I’m going to go out and do fun spring stuff for a while!

Okay, not really. But my daughter has delayed her garage sale until Kendallville’s city-wide sale, May 22-24, so I’m going to take the opportunity to go through the whole house for anything decent enough to sell that I haven’t touched in recent years. If it’s not decent—trash. There’s a lot of it. (My new books will also be for sale at her sale—not quite a book signing, as I’ll only be there part of the time.)

Going through so much stuff confirmed what I already knew: I have too much stuff. Isn’t that something? I live in a house that was built originally with very little storage space, because back then extra stuff was just not that important. Today people rent storage units, because they’ve got too much stuff they never use. It’s kind of silly.

So, I have pledged to get rid of a lot of my stuff. I’m un-junking, de-hoarding, messing with my mess, Avengers de-assembling. (Oh, and I’m going to see The Avengers, too.) I’m even getting rid of some of my books. No, really. I’ll cry a little, but I’ll get over it.

So I’ll be around, but not as much until my de-stuffing stuff and home maintenance things are done. I suppose I’ll get a column out of it. Meanwhile, if you’re my fans, friends, or innocent bystanders, spread the word about my books for sale, please! Then I can buy more stuff. (Kidding! It’s bill paying time.)

De cluttering is quite satisfying as I've found recently!

Yes -- when I can bring myself to do it!

So, I have pledged to get rid of a lot of my stuff. I’m un-junking, de-hoarding, messing with my mess I've been trying to do the same thing, it's not easy. I did manage to get rid of 3 huge bags of craft stuff!

Good luck with the downsizing of the junk.

SOME downsizing will be easy; ALL downsizing will be hard.

    No, they sure wouldn't! If my grandkids read that, they'd still be scratching their heads about the whole "black and white TV" thing.

    Great photos! It’s weird thinking about how different stuff was back in the day. Kids today wouldn’t understand it all would they

    The glass ornaments seemed to break way too easily--in my family, it's easy to see why they didn't last. I suppose the tree just plain wore out.

    Long story, but I hardly have anything left of my childhood. Just my 14 Oz books that accompanied me through nine moves, and a few odds and ends.

    I talk and laugh a lot like my Dad, too! Something I…
