Ray asked about saving stuff a week or so ago.

Many realize we need help to get rid of "treasures".

It was very hard today BUT I trashed four 4 foot blinds I took down this weekend. Only one was broke. smile

I did install 16 feet of nice vertical blinds I bought at HD.

(Clearance of course)Had to go to a couple of stores to get enough.

1st step of the 12,

Admit you have too much junk. grin

This pic shows a lot of the reason my 2nd wife became my 2nd ex. This is just one room, there's a couple others as bad or worse.

The harder we try, the bigger the pile gets... frown TB cleans the front porch 3-4 times a year, and I still can't get to the far corner. laugh If I need anything out there I send him t find it.

I have an attic full of stuff, few treasures there. But what I really need is someone that thinks there are treasures there. They must do the labor.
