Welcome to Trash Tuesday (sorry Wednesday), where we talk trash, literally.
This week, we are LITERALLY talking trash, as in an entire UHaul truck full of it and an entire minivan with the seats all stowed away……
Do you remember the pictures I shared with you last week? Yes, they were quite scary for me too. I knew I could finally come clean about my trash because Mark and I had planned last Saturday as trash removal day. I just didn’t realize how much I had accumulated.
To be perfectly fair, some of it was from my old storage closets that Mr. Red and I had demolished last week to make way for more efficient storage. There was also a BBQ that had lived a long and faithful life, but died recently and needed to be removed from the premises. But…..most of it was my trash. Tons and tons of scrap wood, that well, should have been left where it came from. About one hundred and one wood pallets of all shapes and sizes, and heaven knows what else went. But when all was said and done, I have a glorious amount of furniture left, all waiting for a Redoux.
It was a long, hot disgusting day. At about 1:00 it was 103, but I was a woman with a purpose. I knew if I could “organize” some of my junk, I could be so much more productive. We finally finished about 3:00. I wasn’t looking, (or smelling) too lovely at this point. Here is my before:
Luckily, a shower and a little makeup do wonders. I had to go out in public and didn’t want to scare anyone. Here is my “after”
And here is my after!
I even took pictures of each piece and will be categorizing them so I really know what I have! I was so happy to get rid of all this stuff, I promised myself I wasn’t bringing ANYTHING else home until it was cleaned out.
I even passed this sign!
But then this morning I saw this table on someone’s lawn, waiting to be picked up with the trash……What’s one more piece of junque?
