Dammit! Cat just erased the post I was working on!
I found the closet in the living room this morning. It hasn't been accessible for years. Two boxes and one big bag are packed and in the hallway waiting to go to Freeport Community Services in the AM, and another to be packed in the morning to join them. There's also some things that once came home with me because "they might be useful someday" that have found uses, and not in my home! They'll go tomorrow, as well.
I peeked in the closet - most of the clothes in there can be laundered and donated to FCS. If I haven't really missed them in the past several years, I must not need them. Actually, I did miss the flannel and chamois shirts, but the other stuff can go. Jason will have to cull his share of the clothing in there, too, and I will make him do that soon. As soon as the closet is cleaned out, we can hang up and store the coats that are currently heaped in the chair so that the chair can be used for sitting. A novel concept, I know. The other thing I noticed about the closet is that the shelves inside are pretty empty and can be used to store things like winter hats, scarves, and mittens with a few organizer boxes.
A trip can also be made to J's brother's this weekend and we'll give them the large number of toys that belonged to Clancy that Bandit will never play with.
It's amazing what can be accomplished in a short time with a bit of will, several empty boxes, and some kickin' tunes on the stereo. Between Pat Benatar and Billy Idol, the clutter may not have a chance!
