About two months ago I promised myself I would not go to the thrift stores anymore until I had sold and listed the majority of what I have. Â Now remember I have one, okay two… okay okay three storage units full of CRAP. Â My husband Jim asked if there was anyway I could get two cars in the garage, my convertible beetle and our new 2012 VW Beetle? I said sure… it was HARD! Weather had to cooperate, etc. Â I realized during this venture I had way to much stuff and I decided then and there that I would not buy until I had the stuff in that garage listed. Â (I will tackle the storage units later). I have been saying that for years. Â I have decided that the way to help people is to show them that I have the same problem they do but I am tackling it .. one small step at a time.
When I would buy stuff, I would just put it in the garage and get to it later.. Later became years.
The bins really help. Â I have a Dymo Label writer and I printed off labels to put on the bins so I know what is in each one. Â I can pull a bin at a time and list from it.
Over the years as I got smarter in my purchases I had a lot of junk that was re donated back to Savers in town. Â I have pretty much stayed away from Open Puzzles and most books (other than needlework)
