The More I Get Rid Of, the Larger My House!
This may not be the right forum for this topic, but as we all live in smaller houses (2000 sq ft is small?) I thought it might be appropriate. I am certainly not a hoarder nor materialistic, but I do have lots of stuff that I no longer want or need. The hard part is what to do with it all? I usually give to Goodwill or Salvation Army but they don't want everything, and I hate to add to the landfill. I have piles of magazines (from the past 1-3 years) that I have been saving for the great project ideas, however, it seems that I almost always look to the internet for ideas.
My great discovery is that there are people on Freecycle who actually want my old knitting magazines, gardening magazines, etc. This makes it almost fun to get rid of things; like bestowing a gift! I would love to hear of ways that others manage to 'enlarge' their houses.
