Love the punching bag idea!
Is the space finished?
You could put in a yoga or meditation space.
Just a thought.

1) Video the contents of the boxes
2) Seal them up, also on video
3) Ship them to his new place of residence
4) Keep proof of delivery

Not finished - just a regular garage.
My idea was opening it up at night and running on a treadmill “outside”.

Mine left some of his carp in a pile in the middle of the living room. Said he'd be back to collect it "tomorrow". I chucked it after while.

Check with your state, municipal regulations, or maybe your lawyer.

Say you want them out by X.

A couple days after X, throw them out. I wouldn't send reminders or anything.

I'm petty. I would say nothing at all for months, throw them out, and never mention it. If he said anything after that, animals got into the garage and chewed things up; there was a break-in and stuff was vandalized when they couldn't get into the house; water damage is always messy; a box of cleaning rags caught fire and there was smoke damage. (Sounds unlikely, but the house across the street was totaled when the rags one resident used refinishing furniture in the basement caught fire.)

Take the boxes and leave them on his front porch. Done. Ignore all BS texts and communication about it.

I thought my XAH was never going to get his stuff out of my garage. So...I told him he had 30 days or I would call a local group to come get it for donation. He waited until the very last day, but he did it. Now, that was a whole garage full of stuff.

He still calls me 4 YEARS LATER saying I kept his stuff or threw it away. Mind you, I went out of town and gave him access to the house to take whatever he wanted. For the whole weekend. I have to remind him of that when he accuses me of not giving him all his stuff. Goodness. Reality, he is a mess and cannot keep track of anything and his memory is terrible b/c he has pickled his brain in RX drugs and alcohol.

I would send a text: if the three boxes in the garage aren't picked up by (date) they will be discarded. Give him seven days, no more, and no excuses.

Hi Nata,

How are doing today?

Ebb and flow. One day at a time.

I'm finding there's healing somewhere in waiting and then when the timing's right, everything tends to work out and move ahead. Sometimes the moving ahead is simply an uncomfortable place to be, and exactly what I need.

May today be an easy one.

Doing ok boxes still in the garage - my focus these days is on DS who is going through puberty and having a hard time with anxiety. Accepting things I cannot change comes in handy here to.

This too, shall pass
