    We are giving grandson the bed that is in DH'S office so he will have more room. We will take more stuff to storage to get it out of the house until our son moves out and takes it with him.

    I've been decluttering for the church garage sale- the church makes the $ and we can take a write-off.

    So far, I've got some school items, books, clothing and a few stuffed toys. I hope DH and the kids will donate items but am doubtful. The items amount to a kitchen trash bag.

    that is a good idea. I gave up on garage sales just too much work and very cheap people around here. there is a free take and gave place locally.

    gave a bunch of british mags to a friend who is british. a couple of shirts so far in the ongoing thrift store bag. gave a couple of collectiable teaspoons from mil to friend.

    Well, I went through half the basement. I can't do much as a lot of it is the kid's stuff and DH's collectibles. We have enough collectibles to open a shop. Seriously. So, those boxes got closed up...…...

    DS1 has the middle of the room devoted to housewares and empty boxes from when he had an apartment. So, those were left on the floor...…..

    I'll get through the huge 4 foot plastic containers that house my holiday items, old toys, more collectibles and see if I can decrease the stuff and consolidate. That will be for another day.

    I have more books, luggage, a large picture, a computer and clothing to donate.

    you are so nice lisa lol If I let my family have their way would be a hoarders situation going on. said to dh doesn't your mils place give you ideas.

    we decluttered some of mils place. stacks of realtor notepads, old unopened etc. bought some things home to give away at a later date. pass along to benefit others.

    I'll go through those boxes this week on my day off. See if DH will want to get rid of any old computers by taking the hard drives out. We have several so I hope he will part with more. I sold some Tupperware on ebay. COOL. I'll see what else can be sold and group them together for ebay.
