I just got rid of 5 garbage bags of linens and jackets and clothes. Also a huge keyboard that my son took apart 4 months ago and left in our living room along with tons of his stuff. I have begged him for four months to come and get his stuff and he's told me just to give it all away, so I did. We are not on good terms, unfortunately.
As soon as I can get our storage room organized and tidy my husband told me to go for it and turn it into a sewing room.
I'm 63 yrs old and at this time in my life I don't need so much to take care of and carry from pillar to post everytime I want to get organized. I'm tired of seeing the same little things I've had for twenty five years that I have no use for.
My greatest fear is to leave this earth and have to have my family clean everything up and think of me as a slob. I may not be able to part with everything but it will be organized.
