How could I?

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

To give some background here, hubby and I have our home up for sale. Yes, we are staying in the local area just "downsizing" property only. We have finally admitted that it is way too much for us to take care of, especially since we both have such bad allergies/asthma.

Well, I am taking my time packing, going through everything and tossing stuff out as I pack. I know that I keep filling trash bags, giving away stuff, putting stuff in a stack for garage sale and filling boxes but, it seems that when I look around, I haven't done anything!

I know, I am trying to keep things organized, clean and the such for when we are showing the house but, geez, all I think is "how could I have crammed so much stuff in such small storage areas?" It is a little more difficult since I can't just go through and pack everything. I mean we are still living here and have to keep certain items out. (especially with this nice Florida weather that keeps changing).

Oh well, it is considered exercise, I am not eating as much, and am cleaning out as I go so, when the time does come that we move, I won't have to do it then!!
Gotta close, the boxes are calling my name! lol

    When we decided that we were going to move to Florida, we got rid of just about everything except for the most cherished items. It was very liberating! Since that time we go through stuff a few times a year and get rid of unwanted items. We give them to charity or to the kids across the street. The kids across the street have a great time with those items too!

    It's amazing what we collect over the years, isn't it? I keep a box in the laundry room for things to go to the thrift shop and I manage to fill it almost every week with things we don't use or need. I wonder what I could bring if I were doing what you are????????
