Mom is moved back into her home, and even though it took far too long, it is absolutely perfect for her needs. When we first began excavations, we had to go through a seemingly insurmountable mess – decades of ‘stuff’ that she simply couldn’t part with…
We used four categories: “Keep” (put in storage during renovations), “Donate”, “Garage Sale”, and “Pitch”. The “Donate” pile was substantial, and Mom’s church had a great inventory that year. The “Garage Sale” items were parked in her back yard shed for future disposition.
This week, my niece, DQ began rooting through some of those items, and has been working on a family garage sale. i was surprised to get the following picture via text message last night.
DQ: I’m going to assume you’ve been through this box before?
daisyfae: YES! Definitely my handwriting!
