A Minimalist - What The Heck?

Since I am opening up a new business I needed to get into the shed to find the things I know I can use, being a warm day I decided to do that today.

I opened the door and stopped dead still, mouth hanging open, thinking " what the heck happened in there?!"

You went no further. Open the door and BAM! its in your face.

I stood staring at all that stuff and I seen a pattern. None of it was mine. Once again he opened the door and did the " sit it down" till it was at the door.

I took a deep breath and dug in. I began to bring everything that was in the walking path out and sat it in the yard. When I got to the back and to where my stuff was I thought about how I can put all his stuff back in but still be able to walk to the back if need be.

I started with the very first thing I took out, it would not be used till the Summer so it went first, to the back. Next was the tiller and after that the push mower. the rest was small junk but he uses it so I found a place for it, just not in the floor.

After I finally got all the stuff out I needed and all the stuff back inside the shed, I was tired and it was getting dark. No work on the business for me today.

I will draw the line by saying " if its not a tool for working, it has to go."

This is the year! I am getting rid of over half of that stuff, its not anything that is worth much but I would like to load it all on a truck and go to trade day, sell what I can and leave the rest with a sign that reads " free." 

Is your shed overflowing?

  1. Not only is my shed overflowing but my Man Cave is about to burst with all the ''it might come in useful one day'' junk in it. It's getting so that I can't find my computer!

  2. Ohhh! That is bad. You need to have a sale and make money and room!
