Purging My Attic, wow 😳

Saturday, June 06, 2020

On Thursday 4 young men came and took items out of my attic. I had them leave the Christmas stuff up there. My living room is FULL of nasty boxes 📦 of STUFF. A lot of that stuff has been up there for 28 years. Wow😳.

My outside trash can is bulging. And I still have a very long way to go.

I am using the black lawn -leaf bags to put the trash in. Our city will not take trash bags that are not in the actual trash container. It will take me weeks to get all of this disposed of.

I have called around and asked about an available dumpster that I could use, but no luck.

I have been flattening those old dilapidated boxes and they are on the front porch. No place else to put them, it is supposed to rain starting tomorrow and all the rest of the week.

I have two full/heavy leaf bags ready to trash, but no room in my trash can. I still have 15 more dilapidated boxes 📦 to go through. Right now I have 2 1/2 boxes 📦 of usable stuff ready to donate. I am sure there will be more to donate and lots more trash for sure.

This project has been a very long time coming. Am I tired of it...... you bet ya. Am I willing to quit?.......Nope.

If I had some place to put the trash items, I would probably work 24 hours to get it completed. I am so glad I have this site to vent. I am doing my best to stay focused and not get discouraged. Thanks for listening. Blessings.

    Yo are so wise to do this now, when there is not time pressure and you can pace yourself for your energy allotment. I tried to get me family to do this with me for YEARS and they resisted. Then it was time to downsize and move in a hurry and with time pressure. Give yourself kudos and gold stars for these efforts!

    Last summer I rented a roll away dumpster. Probably much larger than what you need. Google, that's how I found mine, and you can probably find something smaller to fit your needs. Good luck!

    I have really decluttered 3 times now and I just now feel really good about it. Can you donate any? We have the same issue with trash. I always donate what I can. I’m sure you are, just an idea if not.
