Today, having nothing better to do on our last few days of vacation, we decided to put away all the Christmas decorations. They go into the garage rafters. While we had the ladder out, we pulled down every other box up there. We decluttered 3 of the 7 boxes and a few other things! Productive day in the garage!
Box 1: Memorabilia – this was a hard one to do. It took the afternoon to completely go through and do the shredding of stuff with our name/address.
Barb’s report cards K-12, 7 deflated balloons, 45 greeting cards, 3 postcards, 1 scrapbook, 3 books for places we visited, and a lot of comics and receipts for places we went while dating!
Box 2: Empty Boxes!
Kiddo #2 got this RC car while in elementary school. She is about to graduate medical school in a few months! The car is gone – now its box is too!
Box 3: Old Camping Stuff
1 BBQ grate, 4 plates, 4 mugs, 1 thermos, 1 first aid box, plastic and stainless silverware, 4 bottles, 1 box of dog flea collars, and 1 package of toilet seat covers (some of us have issues sitting on public toilets without them!)
1 reptile cage (the chameleon died about 15 years ago), 2 fishbowls, 1 Therm-a-jug, 1 under-carriage piece for the car, and 1 candle-lit school house.
