I have been away fro a while because I was hit with a sudden illness. In that time there have been garage sales and trips! So here I am sharing some of my adventures!

I went with some friends to Universal Studios park for their haunted hause stuff. We got to up close to the psycho house which was really cool! They had it lit up and available for pictures.

20151005_105632

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought the dumpster was going to take more weeks. Turns out we got it filled in one! My dad filled it with some more items after this not by much.

The garage to another house we are working on emptying and having our garage sales at. All of this was for our first garage sale of the month. We had been filling this house till it had no more room.

This was for a garage sale where I live. I took all these items hoping the proceeds would go to our underfunded hoa. It helped a little. Unfortunately, the items I hope would be key didn’t sell.

This is just some ugly thing my dad and found and wants to keep.

Went exploring one day in the neighborhood and found this beautiful valley. The clouds were impressive that day as well. I had to stop and get picks.

Dumpster week 1

This is a combination of three days of work. I like to start a with a picture of where we are going to start to get the day going. It really does feel good to get rid of this junk.

20150930_094052

 

 

 

 

 

This is all under the overhang.

20150930_094059

 

 

 

 

 

It would be nice sometimes if the stuff we threw out was light…but dreams are just that.

This is how we found the piles of carpet and wood.

20150930_120903

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Under the canoe we found a ton of lawn mowers.

This is scooter I put out for free and got an incredible response. We gave it to a really nice family who came to meet us.

20151001_102051

 

 

 

 

 

All the wood…

20151001_102540

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So now we are down to carpet. It is o incredibly heavy. It’s shag carpet from the 70’s. So we attempted to cut it in half. The struggle was great.

20151001_103607

 

 

 

 

 

20151001_104403

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Horrible green.

20151001_104410

 

 

 

 

 

We also found a rod iron door.

20151001_104626

 

 

 

 

 

Then we found this nice ladder underneath all the carpet.

20151001_105423

 

 

 

 

 

another attempt to cut the carpet. Eventually we got a carpet knife. I actually found if you tear the carpet the long way it becomes way easier. Pro tip from the hoarder destroyer!!

Last bit of effort before the end of the week. Nice nasty gold chair from the 70’s. This is a dumpster after four days of work….

I think the biggest thing people should take away from this kind of stuff or situation is that keeping stuff because you think you might need it later becomes a burden really fast. If it overwhelms you it’s not worth it.
