The Big Clean-Out
Time to dejunk here at the AOW household.
I have some dear friends coming over to help with the lifting and have also scheduled special trash pick-up scheduled for later this week.
Mr. AOW have lived here nearly 41 years and my extended family since 1949. When family members moved out, they left a lot behind "in storage."
Two sheds, a cottage and a cellar are packed full. I will, of course, be keeping items with sentimental value: for example, my father's hand plow, which dates back at least to 1921:
"One man's junk is another man's treasure."
Other junk is, well, JUNK!
We spend the first 40 years of our lives accumulating "treasures" — and the next 20 years getting rid of that treasure. Otherwise, our possessions suffocate us!
