I reviewed some books before hitting it. Don Aslett's book "Clutters Last Stand" is one I borrow from my mom, so it's not pictured but the principals are the same. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it! "Get rid of junk you don't use regularly."
This was what I saw upon opening the door. UGG! Totally embarrassing!
We have saved boxes over the years so that in the event that we move, we can put things in their original box. It was time to get rid of these boxes. This photo is ONLY boxes! Big boxes!! We filled Grandaddy's truck bed with them for the trip to the dump. Thanks Grandaddy and Grandma for your help!
I wasn't alone in the attic all day. Nope - I found this little "friend." Totally freaked me out when I lifted the box to see this little guy. Thankfully he was dead and from that moment on, I was paranoid with every box I lifted and every thing I moved. I was ready for a swarm of these guys to attack me. Thankfully, he was solo. I put him in a shoe box for the dump. YUCKO!
I did it!!! From 9:00-2:30 with a 10 minute lunch break - working like a mad woman until the job was done. In addition to the truck load of boxes and trash, I also have another truck load of donations to head to the donation drive at the school tomorrow.
Ahh - Now if it would only last....
