What a sad decluttering job, Booksaver. I hate it for you, especially knowing it's not the right time to adopt another kitty. I remember you mentioning your naps with kitty - so sweet.
I am making a little progress in my garage. Dh took his work stuff for the work party yesterday. I've boxed up my front porch pillows in see through bins that stack on the top of the shelves in the garage, so I can find what I want. Today I will take another bag of books and a box of Goodwill stuff, and I have a contact to take the computers for hard drive shredding next week. (There are five laptops out there!)
And the dresser that was dmom's is not in great shape, but I hate to let it go. Dfriend M has volunteered to go with me to dd's to help us decide if it will fit there. If not, it goes upstairs somewhere. Discussed with dh last night and that's the best choice for now, even tho he's not crazy about getting it up stairs and where it will go...
