- If you bring any ONE thing into this house (new, old, refurbished, free, damaged, pristine, borrowed, stolen, inherited, whatever), you have to get rid of TWO other things.
I guess Hubby has a better excuse than I do, since he has lived in this house for going on 38 years. I've only been here for going on 14 years, and it seems that I have a lot more junk than he does.
I've already warned him that I'm on a roll, and the basement is next. I won't insist that he get rid of his prized possession, a '69 Ford pickup truck that lives in the basement because he bought it brand new and had it semi-restored a few years ago. But everything else is fair game.
Except my bicycle. And the tandem. And my kayak.
If we'd had the energy and the time or organize a yard sale, I'll bet we could have made $1000. And we aren't even finished yet. But if goodwill can benefit from our stuff, I don't mind donating it.
I'm just tired of hauling it downstairs.
