The Clampetts?

 If you are of a certain age, you know the Clampetts.  Jed, Granny, Jethro, Ellie May.  Hubby and I felt like kissing cousins to the family today.  We have a bunch of STUFF stored in a rented storage facility nearby.  The movers will not move any of our things that are not at our house.
Today using a borrowed trailer and our big SUV, we made three trips.  So much stuff!  We divided it all in three sections:  donate, longterm storage, move to new house.  We left the things to donate at the storage unit.  I'll arrange to have a charity come pick them up next week.  Longterm storage items (mostly stuff for our kids) were put in a section of our garage.  Anything going to the new house was put in another area of the garage.  Needless to say, our cars will not be in the garage for now!

We are pleased to be getting rid of so much of this STUFF!

By the way, my dye supplies have found a new home!  They were picked up this morning - glad they have a new home!

We are making progress around here and it feels good.  We still have to finish clearing out the attic - tomorrow?

Tonight we cleaned up (ourselves) and went out for a nice meal.  Then we took a lovely walk at Aldridge Gardens.  The hydrangeas there are in full bloom and gorgeous.  I'll post some pics tomorrow.

I know how you feel - we are the Clampetts - and busy de-cluttering. How do we accumulate so much stuff? Bought my Mum a beautiful pink hydrangea last week to thank her for helping me xx

Used to love watching the Beverley Hillbillies! And you're right, you do need to be of a certain age to get the reference.
Good luck with the move.
