Cleaned the garage

March 7th, 2009 at 07:22 pm

Or at least I started to clean the garage. It is NOT a one-day endeavor. It is more of a lifelong challenge. LOL.

The temp rose into the 60s today - actually may have broken 70 - so I took advantage of the nice weather and spent a few hours in the garage. I made some progress, though there is certainly still much to be done. I broke down a bunch of cardboard boxes that went into the recycling bin. I filled a couple of trash bags. I got rid of some boxes from things that I just don't need to save anymore, like our laptop that we've had for 4 years or the CD player that we've also had for years. No reason to save the boxes anymore and they were taking up a lot of shelf space that can be used for stuff we actually need. I also moved some boxes from the floor area onto open space on one shelving unit. And, I packed up a few things to donate to Goodwill - stuff that we've tried to sell at least twice at yard sales without success. I didn't make it to Goodwill today but maybe later this week I'll run that stuff over. I also found one item that I put on ebay this evening, so I may even make a few bucks out of the cleaning effort.

    Excellent job! I'm always thrilled to hear about people decluttering. I'm sure you feel a little lighter getting rid of all those boxes! Keep up the good work.

    I get so inspired when I read about your decluttering. We also have to get busy about going through our garage.

    Because of your ebay challenge, we put an AC on Craigslist and sold it. It had taken up so much room in the shed. We still have another large item to get rid but the sale of it has been slower.

    Good job!

    Aleta, that's great about selling the AC unit. I'm thinking about selling my lawnmower because I haven't used it for about 5 years and don't plan to. If I ever decide to go back to mowing my own lawn, I could always pick up a used one on Craigslist. I think I'll put it out when we have a yard sale and if it doesn't sell there, list it on Craigslist. I'd love to have it out of the garage because it takes up so much space.

    Putting a lawnmower out in front will attrack men who would otherwise stay in the car to wait for the wives. Lawnmowers sell really well. Good luck!
