I was having a conversation with my DSIL, Malachi, a few months back and I was kinda’ whining about all the stuff that would have to be dug through, when my Mom passes.
And he just looked at me and laughed! What? Your daughter, Tracy, was just saying the same thing……about you! Opps!
So these last few weeks I have been on a mission to de-stash. Let me tell you it is not that easy. I have lived here nearly 20 years and I like to thrift and collect antique pottery (at least I did in the 80’s). So I started with the pottery and I did sell some stuff on EBay. More coming.
This week I started in the kitchen. I have a grandson who will soon be moving out of the house and will need stuff for his new place. I went through and pulled out all the stuff I never use anymore and ended up with two medium size piles. Some of which my daughter is taking. Yay!
Then I went through my jewelry… So many little scraps of gold and silver. No longer worn, or missing one earring, or not really in style anymore. Off it goes to be sold at the jewelers. I think they might even take a set of silver flatware, that I no longer use.
Where shall I start next?
