Yesterday afternoon DH got the step ladder out and emptied the top of the closets in the spare room. This is where we store all sorts of stuff we don't need on a regular basis, including DD's guitar which was the main reason we went in there - it needed checking and airing.. It smelled really musty but is much better this morning. I already warned her she needs to bring new strings when she comes to visit this fall. Hmm... maybe I should take up playing again? It's been 30 years, so I'll have to start from scratch.
Oh my!! I had never realized how much stuff we brought down here "just in case" not knowing the size bed we were going to get etc.
Here's a list of some of the things we found:
5 king size quilts
2 king size comforters and 1 matching bed ruffle
6 sets of sheets and a few extras in all different sizes
3 bar stools (still in the box, unassembled)
4 valances and 4 curtain panels
a box with 10 coffee mugs
and other miscellaneous bits and bops..
The good news is that a lot of the stuff we can donate and the rest we can use or take back to Colorado for use there. DH uses a lot of towels on the boat, so he was happy to find another pile.
Why do we accumulate so much stuff??? That Justin Case guy has to lot to answer for!
