Dear Hoarders: Buried Alive

Thank you for giving me the impetus to de-clutter my garage.  I just sent my husband to the local Goodwill with a minivan-full of crap things.   Now, I actually have room to sort the "good stuff"- things that I will re-sell and get a return on my investment.  I am so excited to get into the boxes full of Pyrex, linens, glassware, melmac, ashtrays, pottery, and so much more!

Hope everyone is having a productive day!

I think the stuff just multiplies when we aren't looking? Many days I think "who bought all this crapola, anyway?". Congrats on getting yours under control - mine is still a work in progress!

Jan, not quite "under control" yet- but it's a start! Like you, mine is a work in progress, too.

JunkStuffTreasures said...

Yes, you will! I really was not motivated, until I watched that Hoarders episode!

JunkStuffTreasures said...

As "stuff lovers", we just can't resist the purchase. But, the organizing- that's another story!

Hubby keeps saying that the "Hoarder" show folks are coming here! I tell him, NO, it will be the American Picker's because it's good stuff!LOL!!

That's my story, too- and I'm sticking to it!

You've inspired me. I think I'm going to secretly take a van-full of stuff to Goodwill too! We're planning on having a garage sale in the Fall, but in the meantime, I can't move around in the shed to get at the good stuff either!

The best part is finding all the treasures underneath the junk!

Thanks for your kind words, I hear you my garage is in desperate need of some major get-rid of the junk.... I have been busy listing and selling things on E-bay and Etsy and what does not sell well of to donate it goes! Hugs, Diane In California.. I am your newest follower (:

Dinae, you are so nice to follow me. True confessions: I am not a good blogger. I have all good intentions, then.... excuses, excuses! However, I am a good shopper (scored big this weekend), but can't find time to photograph, share, sell!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Do you want to come over and work on my garage next? Good for you for clearing some of the clutter to get to all your treasures. Nothing like a Hoarders episode to get you motivated to clear it all out.

Come on over and tackle my basement now that you have your storage cleaned out!! xo

JunkStuffTreasures said...

So true!!!

JunkStuffTreasures said...

You overestimate me! My storage (that implies that my junk is organized!) is far from cleaned out- just boxes upon boxes upon bags, etc.... I did go through 3 boxes this weekend and found some fun items I forgot about.
