    Out with the old and incoming of the new. You now have a nice clean; ( ‘mostly as U put it) garage for you to start all over again. Oh, if only I lived closer. It would had been like a Great Fun Christmas shopping for me.
    Wait right after Christmas, the items that people will be throwing away. It’s amazing the ornaments, artificial trees, etc. that my son-in-law has found for me.

    :} you look the way I do when I clean out my garden shed :}
    Enjoy your day and have a wonderful evening.
    Can’t wait to see your next treasures that you find in and around the dumpsters.

      Colleen, I love after Christmas Dumpster Diving. I was telling my husband how I was curbing my habits and he reminded me how good the post Christmas Junk finding is! Not just Christmas stuff, but everything! Hope you are having a beautiful holiday season 🙂

    Good for you! I had to do it too! I don’t have quite as much as you, but needed to make room in the garage for the snow blower and got rid of all the free pieces I had. They were there for far too long to feel bad about setting them back into the wild.

    I filled my garage with “junk” finds since August and also had to empty it before the first snowfall here in New England. I can’t wait to start up again in March!!!!

    How I feel you…I to have a problem.. I pick up items with thoughts of granduor on what I’m going to make, create & paint. Alas, some if it is still on my patio that was once a very nice outdoor room. Complete with outdoor kitchen and a TV. I just got a rude awakening, we live in a condo and all our units are going to be painted. I need to get this stuff out of here. At least for the time being. I revisited what I had. It was like finding treasures all over again..with the exception of a few things. I think a little critter made a home in one of my cabinets. I found mounds of droppings. Out it went…So I borrowed a neighbors garage, stored items in a old van we have. And covering up other pieces that can stay out. But for at least the last 3 months I have curbed (haha) my picking. As soon as the painting is done. I will get started and paint these items and list them for sale. I Promise!!

    A lady I met at Haven told me that all that gOOd junk waiting its turn at reinvention is just a garage full of gOOd ideas. Ooooh. I’ve had to do some clean up too after that realization!
    Maaaan, you put out some gOOd junk! I might have slipped if I lived close! ; D

  7. It’s always such a great feeling to clear out the excess isn’t it? It sneaks up on you little by little until one day you turn around, or should I say literally trip over something, and say, where did all this stuff come from?

    No matter what “IT” is, we must keep the cycle going. Junk or money or time. When you keep the cycle going, your turn comes up again and again.
