J is for JUNK

April 12, 2011
A to Z Blogging Challenge
Day 10 - J

Junk in the attic: Christmas decorations and wrap, artificial Christmas tree in the box, assorted glassware and boxed up knick-knacks, old tax returns, old picture frames, old silk flowers, an old steamer chest, old wicker baskets, and only God knows what else.

Junk in the basement: canning jars, two old coffee makers, paint in colors that will never grace my walls again, computer packaging and boxes, twelve coolers in whatever size you can imagine (we only use one of them), old kitchen canisters, old candles, bags of sawdust for on an icy driveway, a box fan, a desk fan, a ripped raincoat, and I don’t want to even know what Himself has in his workshop. I don’t go in there.

Junk in the shed: a broken shovel; a non-operational roto-tiller, garden pond supplies for a pond we no longer have, two non-functional weed-whackers, three non-operational chainsaws Himself swears he’s using for spare parts, an old window air conditioner in case the central air goes out, birdhouses, decorative flags, a sled, one large dog crate, on small dog/cat carrier, a doll’s bed, four bicycles (we only ride two), two bicycle racks (we just load the bikes into the bed of the Silverado), a grass seed spreader, a garden canopy, a tent, window screens, buckets, old flower pots, a box of ceramic tile, low-voltage lighting we took out when we got solar lights, and only God knows what else.

How did we get so much JUNK?

Call the Pickers. I’m ready to sell!

LOL I always realize the amount of junk I have only when I am forced to "move" ;) which I did a couple of months ago when we shifted to Canada..and I had to dig out the "never ending" junk from all the rooms!!!!

Following you from A-Z challenge!

Thanks for stopping by! The challenge has been great fun so far.

I showed this blog to Himself and he promised that this summer we'd take everything out of the shed, paint the inside (it's been 10 years), and only put inside what we really need/use.

Aye. Right. Like I believe THAT! LOL!!!!

Just dropping by from A-Z. I know how you feel about the junk :) My room can attest to that...

Hi Sarah :) The living space of my house is in great shape (because everything gets shoved in the attic, the basement or the shed).

Thanks for stopping by Between the Keys.
