And the Best Brother goes to mine...

It's one thing to clean and sort and cull and organize your own shit but to spend your vacation day organizing someone else's is beyond the call of duty. But, honestly, I could not have done nearly as good a job without his participation.

I have two double storage closets out on the terrace. Both are way taller than I am and crammed to the gills with shit plus even more crap on top of both. We emptied them both. Here's what it looked like when the contents were in the living room.


Three piles. Keep, toss, Goodwill. The goal was to keep the keep pile tiny. Bill was ruthless and it was fabulous.

See that double decker cart there on the right? We filled two of those with trash plus a smaller cart. And we filled the double decker cart twice plus the small cart for Goodwill. Bill made two trips with the car full both times.

Here's what they look like now.

Plus, I did the same with a very large bin and a smaller one here in the closet in the living room. Now I have way more room in there, too. Cables and cables and cables and cables and cables. We probably found 25 USB printer cables. All gone now. And it's amazingly wonderful. The cats are exhausted.
