When we looked at this house for sale 14 + years ago, I was smitten by the garage. Double wide, double deep, with a lovely attic. When we moved in we put a great many bins of things we didn't need right away right up in that attic. And as the years passed, more things piled up. It became a bit of a mess. Today's project was to clean things up.
I neglected to take a "before" picture, but let me say that there were stacks of totes, cardboard boxes, and even some things left by the previous owners. There were books, and clothes, and a variety of decorative items strewn about. It took two of us 1.5 hours, and three of us another 30 minutes to bring the attic to look like this:
It is funny to think that we spend years acquiring things, then years getting rid of them. I appreciate that as I get older I put less value on the "things" in my life, and more value on the people. It is one of the gifts of aging.
