I'm getting the impression that a lot of hoarders are people who had nothing as a kid and are trying to compensate.
What happens at day 31?? I bet you do it for her.

I'll do what I did last time....put it out on the driveway.....

She has a hard time throwing stuff away......unlike me....

Part of the problem...the mom of one of her best friends passed away a few months ago and a lot of the stuff ended up our garage....we are having a garage sale this Sat...so I'm hoping a lot of it goes....

She knows it needs to move....but she has been so tied up with the kids school...just not a whole lot of time......yea...she is one of those moms....sort of like one of the members here.....

Anything that doesn't go at the garage sale, doesn't go back in the garage.

Take it to the charity store, leave it at the curb with a 'free' sign, or file it in the bin.

Yes , we are both busy mom's but yours is much nicer than me. The friends stuff has to go, but If you put my stuff on the sidewalk, I'd be having a separate garage sale when you were away. .. Discounted wood working tools ...

But not until your first project was complete...a new Dawg house

I keep this big beast in one of my garage bays along with a Ford Ranger and I still have plenty of room to work on both.

My dad was like that. He grew up in a poor family. He just hated to throw anything away. Somebody might be able to use it. Sure makes a lot of work for the family when it's time to clean it all out. Especially when most of it just ends up being landfill.
That can be the case and it's really unfortunate for those who grew up poor but it can be use as their motivation to do better things.
