Feeling lighter already

Last week we sold our cottage.  This week I gave away some things on  I still felt overwhelmed with stuff so today I decided it was time to clean out the garage attic.  When I went up there a few days ago there were 5 cats (I have no idea where they came from) and a snake who appeared to have taken up residence.  There's lots of evidence of mice up there too.  Here's what it looked like before I started.  This is just a small section of the attic.  There was lots more.
Here's the after.
We can actually walk up there now.  There's still more that can go but I filled an 8 foot pickup bed to overflowing and couldn't fit anymore.  I found a few things I couldn't let go of that I probably should have.  Next I need to work on cleaning out the cabin.   Usually a good way to get rid of stuff is to move but we have no plans to do that.   I hope this attic isn't full again in 5 years. 


  1. Been doing this myself, sans attic. I spent the whole afternoon throwing away old magazines and articles that I was saving. This was especially silly since I have a CD which has all those articles and magazines on it. Doesn't it feel good to purge?! Congrats on selling your cabin.

  2. Good job. It does feel good to get rid of unwanted stuff.

  3. You and I have had the same agenda this past week. I made a few trips to Goodwill and have to make a trip to the dump. I love getting things gone! My house is getting revamped! :)
