Minimalism And Me - Not Using That Just Dump It

 Photo: The basement ceiling

I have been at it again, working at the old home place. For me its easy to just put old junk into a trash can and roll it to the curb, the problem is taking the time to get it done.

The past few days I have taken a couple of hours out of each to get things done that does not include my normal routine, why? I just feel the need to get this done before Winter. I know I know, its just Spring but time if flying past so fast that it`ll be winter in nearly a blink of an eye.

I went through a box of books, I could not keep not one single book simply because they smell like a musty basement and it looks like silverfish has been having a party. Trash can.

I also found three phones, all with wire attached receivers, with hold, 4 hold lines on each phone.Its been 20 years?! Trash can.

Old picture frames that were going to frame our oh so famous art, that we make. Trash can.

Now did I find anything I will keep? Yes. Six milk glass dessert dishes and canning jars. One two gallon old time pickle jugs. Will I use this stuff? Yes.

I am at the point I need boxes to separate what is trash, donate and sell. I am proud to say I am down to one room, well... one half room.

This week I also have mowed the yard and I piled up all the fallen tree limbs and cut down vines, raked up all the piled up old leaves on the side porch. I had help cutting down small trees, I did all of the drag and stacking.

I am proud of all the work that is being accomplished at this house. I had mentioned to Tony that instead of renting it out, I may just move my sister into the house, she needs more space and she already knows all the neighbors. We will just have to get more things done before I ask her if she wants to move there or not.

How has your week been so far?
