We have sorted 150 boxes of items I had stored in my office, porch and basement. Probably have 50 more boxes to go. It already is feeling so much better, even though the boxes aren't gone yet, but will be picked up by Tuesday evening. It will be nice to get my basement finally cleaned out and organized.
Sitting at my computer feels great with no danger of avalanches of items impinging on my chair. I will get to play the piano again after I move my keyboard into my office. Have not been able to play since my hand surgery, but main hangup has been that it has been in the living room and husband ALWAYS has the t.v. on. It seems to me that playing the piano used to be therapy for the soul...which I Have done not very much for about 2-3 years now. I am rusty but plan to practice up and start to volunteer at the nursing home again. I used to play 2-3 times a month in the Alzheimer's unit at a nursing home near here. I look forward to doing that again.
With all my old "inventory" dealt with, I will be able to concentrate on higher priced items to sell on Ebay and hopefully get a little income generated. I was a bit disappointed that only about 6 boxes out of the 200 or so, had items worth trying to sell. I had no idea I had so much "dead weight" in the cellar. This has been a real wake up call in many ways.
