Step 2: #15 on the New 101 in 1001

On my 4th 101 tasks to accomplish in 1001 days, number 15 states:  Get rid of 101 items.

Here are the second 10.

  1. Old computer printer

    The old clunking printer which no longer prints.
  2. Plastic shoe holders.

    These held dozens of shoes for decades.
  3. Old boom box — No photo due to stealth action.

    Similar to this only larger.
  4. Purple suitcase that goes with son’s luggage set.  He will be taking it home.

    A little dusty but still usable.
  5. Two T-squares went in the trash.

    I’ve been holding on to my broken T-squares for decades.
  6. Old wire baskets sticky with grime also trash worthy.

    These basket have been in the attic unused for decades. Chances are I don’t need them.
  7. Propane grill belonging to the Cottage dweller was picked up by my son as a permanent giveaway.

    Propane gas grill not headed to the dumpster.
  8. Charlie’s grandmother’s flowered china has been given to her great-granddaughter.  This set has every imaginable piece.

  9. Five bags of shredded documents.
  10. Pile of old newspaper and packing from the greenhouse.

    The greenhouse arrived in 2 green plasticized boxes which have ben dumpsterized.

Ten more down, 81 to go.

What can you toss this weekend?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
