I'm itching to get started on a major declutter - and I do mean major. I did a small one some time last year, getting rid of a couple of black bin bags full of clothes, some ornaments and a few carrier bags of yarn. Now I want to do a lot more. Some stuff will be taken to the tip, some donated to charity shops, some offered for pennies on the local social media selling pages.
We can't get rid of any of this stuff right now though, under the current covid restrictions and whilst we're self isolating, so it will need to be stored in the garage. The trouble is....the garage is full up with junk...husband's junk, that he's acquired over many years - stuff that he's been given (other people's easy way of getting rid of stuff they don't want so they don't have to take it to the tip!). And bits of wood etc that he's picked up and thought 'that might come in useful' (only he's never used them), old and broken tools, old tarpaulins, a couple of old cupboards that should have gone to the tip but he wanted to keep them for storage, and now they're full of junk! And a whole heap of who knows what....he's a hoarder of JUNK!
I did say a couple of weeks ago I'd like him to clear out the garage, he said he would ASAP. Well, his ASAP is a bit different to mine! I know he can't take the junk to the tip right now (even his trailer in the garage is full of junk!), but he could at least be sorting through it all and perhaps having a bonfire of the old wood and condensing some of the stuff. Meanwhile, I suppose I could start pulling out all the stuff I don't want and leaving it stacked in places where he's likely to trip over it....that might encourage him to get on with the garage sorting 😒😂
