We had soooooooooooooooo many things that had been boxed and stored that date back to the Northridge earthquake, my dad’s death, my grandfather’s death, moving my mom from her house to her condo and then out of state, moving my grandmother out of her house and into managed care, the problems with this house and having to leave so many things boxed and toted until walls went back up, and now with the discovery of yet another wall we can’t save from the mold I’m going to lose the great built in china cabinet and be left with just a couple of glass doors and a knick knack curio cabinet which is okay too. I’ll get an extra 25 square feet or so in the bathroom.
Anyway, I started pulling it all out (AND I DUG SUPER DEEP) and am boxing it up. I got busy and went through all the boxes, cupboards, drawers, closets, etc… and came up with this plus the 2 dozen boxes in the barn that I’ve already packed up. I’m ONLY keeping the family items that have special memories and the rest is all going. I feel better already. Ironically this was all behind closed doors and there was no clutter until now!!
