"You can never get enough of what you don't need to make you happy." Eric Hoffer
Since we moved into our house it has been a slow battle to renovate and update the house bit by bit. We are finally ready to start on the downstairs - construction is scheduled to start at the end of week.
Since the downstairs isn't used, it has basically become a dumping ground for "stuff" (as has the basement, the garage, and the closets in the spare bedrooms upstairs). Unfortunately in order for construction to start, the downstairs needs to be free of "stuff".
I spent a few hours this morning trying to make a dent. I had quite the pile going of stuff that we just aren't using but is still usable - vases, coffee mug, clothes, shoes, stuff like that. I packed everything up and headed to goodwill. Mark has yet to start on his stuff and he has waaaay more than I do floating around the house.
Looks like it is going to be a good tax deduction year....
