It would have been nice to sell the pool table, but this guy and his family will enjoy it, and he had the skill to take it away.
this is the reason I give up stuff, I think maybe someone else will get a few minutes
or longer out of this thing taking up space in my place.
I love this idea, giving to those who use it and enjoy it.

thank You Lexie....

I can now open a bottom cabinet in my kitchen without junk plastic containers jumping out onto the floor. I made 3 piles...
1. trash
2. donate
3. KEEP

I bought all new glass snaplock storage containers that won't hold odors or stain...I just unpacked the box and put them in the cabinet....(ummm, I bought the new containers Xmas 2011, I had to dust off the box). Onto the next cabinet....I feel so powerful when I'm organized, lol

Perfect!

I think I am going for the glass ones too.
They would always maintain their shape.

On my comparison shopping list!

Now see, I have the urge to throw some random junk into that cabinet. Extra measuring cups or those gadgets I accumulate that are too ugly to have on my counter but too functional to throw out...

I'm so glad you cleaned that up and straightened it out. Those crooked ones were making me crazy. I want to see the new pic now.

I can't believe that I moved into my new place a little over 2 years ago. I had no furniture when I moved in here. Just some outdoor furniture that I used for a living room set, and my dining room. I am just getting so much clutter in here. I now love flea markets and garage sale.

I was never like this.

I was OCD. Everything had to be perfect. Towels had to be folded perfect. Dishes all in order, cups, glasses all in order. I might have qualified to play the husband in "Sleeping with the Enemy" if I was a male.

But you know what? Now my place is a home. And I like it like it like that.

But then again, this can all just be an excuse. I am getting additional closets in the basement, so I might just go back to that clean freak that I was. Who knows????

Update: Just sold bar with barstools and compact fridge on Craigslist!

That's IT for the unwanted junk! All remaining junk is stuff I'm hanging onto because I WANT it. And I have room for all of it.

My AA friend is in my basement as we speak prepping to fix the hole in the ceiling (result of refrigerator icemaker leak year before last) and to lay down the vinyl flooring. Tomorrow we pick up vinyl tiles and order the carpet. A week from tomorrow my ceramic tile for dining room/kitchen/entry goes on sale, so I can pick that up. Got special financing for all the flooring materials.

I can't wait!!!

How wonderfully does the universe work when we get OUT of the freakin' WAY?

The guy that bought the bar and stuff originally called about the fridge only. He came over to see it just a few minutes before my friend doing the work was supposed to be here (I felt reasonably safe because we went in through the basement sliding glass door and I could make a quick escape if necessary--the guy was actually very nice but I still felt better when my friend got here.) The guy looked at the fridge, and at the bar/barstools, called his brother-in-law, who was the one wanting the bar. He made me an initial offer on the fridge and barstools (which I accepted), and went out to his truck to wait to hear from his bro-in-law. A few minutes later, he made me an offer on the bar (which I also accepted). My friend's nephew (who is helping with the job) helped him carry it to the truck (and got a $5 tip from him for doing it). The bar fit JUST EXACTLY in the back of this guy's truck.

As we were moving the bar, I found a socket for a socket wrench on the floor, and I knew it belonged to the guy who took the pool table (that's where he had his tool kit). So I called him, and he was SOOO grateful I found it--he was looking for it that night (probably when he was trying to reassemble the table). He told me to put it outside the back door and he would pick it up tonight or tomorrow.

I feel like I am riding a wave of good karma at the moment.
