We have been accumulating stuff at our house in the east end of Long Island for years. We generally do a mild clean every year but this year I got bit by the bug. Old clothes, old bottles in the pantry, arts and craft kits, broken toys, etc.
I am sure everyone in my family is thrilled they were not here to witness the event. I get a look in my eye and everyone clears out.
There is a huge pile sitting outside the house. Pick up is on Wednesday. The house is spotless, the closets are sparkling. I feel like a new person. Really, there is nothing else quite like it.
