Cleaning up!

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Sounds like I won at gambling- but anyway.....
I am in a "free" group on facebook. I saw an add for guys wanting to come pick up old appliances and scrap metal. Wow- that washing machine that was languishing in my basement is GONE! Yeah! They also tore down the shed in the backyard that I had NO idea how I was going to manage. I am so pleased. I also know that I got lucky, but I'm smart and did some checking. I gave my email address to the person online, got a response and the person used his first and last name- I googled him and everything that he said on the phone checked out. I told him to call the next day and I would give him my address and driving directions. Turns out he thought I looked familiar- he fishes on the greenway where I do my walking and jogging. LOL, and I thought I looked so generic!
Back to the story....once we got done with the "free" facebook transaction I asked if he would be able to be hired to remove the contents of the shed and take some other items to the dump for a fee. He agreed and will return today. Out with the falling apart desk- the two chairs that I needed to "refinish" that have been sitting out in the weather ( I discovered one stank so badly of smoke that I couldn't bring it back inside), out with what is draining me- that clutter, and in with a determined attitude to DO something about it.
I am also working on cutting back my spending. I did invest in a wonderful product from amazon that I have used every day since it arrived. It is like a vacuum but senses the dirt when you sweep it over near the machine. Love it!
To sum it up- taking small steps to a goal- to have a comfortable home that I can enjoy- not a clutter pile that stresses me out. I'm on my way...............
