Excellent advice, Jenny.
We are doing a little more then the normal "spring cleaning" this year. It's been a year since my ex-husband and his mom moved from my house and they left a ton of stuff in the garage and other areas of the house - a huge non-working fridge in my storage room, etc.... so we rented a u-haul truck and have been taking things to the County landfill - truly in truck loads.
My ex had all these expensive power tools he left in the shed, so I've been giving those to my dad who has been helping me work on my house. Talk about a loving dad - he has up and down ladders helping me replace facia boards on my 2 story house.
Anyway, sorry I digress - so we've been clearing out to release, what we affectionately call "their evil spirit" from our home. It's been a journey and a feeling of re-awakening as I unclutter their "stuff." It's a long process, we've been working on it slowly for awhile because we didn't want to throw their stuff away since they were supposed to come back for it. But since it's been a year and they seem to be making no move to do so - it's getting pitched so we can work on our Feng Shui!
