Talk about a FULL HOUSE

The House if Full!

That's what my late dear husband always used to say. And he was correct!!
Every nook and cranny of our home is filled to the gills with STUFF!!
Both he and I were/are packrats, and collectors of many things.
We subscribe to at least 10 publications, kept lots of our junk mail too.
I print out tons of paper - with information on how to do things, like crafts I'm going to make - (but rarely if ever do - LOL) and recipes, and other assorted items I deem to be "printable".
I have stacks and stacks of this STUFF.

Well this madness has got to stop at some point - and the stopping and the starting some action time for me will be this April - when I return from my Snowbirding vacation in Florida - and get back in gear in my home in Buffalo NY.
I have decided that it's time for me to make the house
ready for SALE
That means getting rid of, sorting of, dreading of, dealing with
- the "STUFF".

I did however find some helpful information online -
and websites that will "help" me

>> insert pause here << while I print these pages out and file on top of the Pile
of STUFF right next to me
100 Reasons to Get Rid of It

  1. Good luck with purging & cleaning, Mary! I've had to do that myself. It will give you a sense of relief (after mourning what you've lost) and you'll feel like a huge weight has been lifted (about 1 ton of paper.....LOL)!

    Good luck again!!!!
