kerravonsen: Jarod investigating ice cream: Genius at work (genius-at-work)
Besides procrastinating by making a bracelet, I actually did do some sorting and moving and preparing-of-stuff-to-be-thrown-out. The alcove near the fireplace now has the table-thing which was in the front hall, with two sets of plastic drawers underneath it. This is a much better situation than the drawers had been in before, where they had been in the far corner of the lounge with a plank on top of them, and that plank was piled high with boxes. I noticed as I was moving them, that the top parts of the drawers had bent, probably due to the plank. Oops. Well, now they're under the table-thing, there is no pressure being put on them. I'm calling it a "table-thing" because it isn't a table, and it isn't a desk, and I'm sure there's a proper name for it, but I can't remember what it is. It's more like a desk than a table, really.

I have STUFF. It accumulates. Being a frugal, responsible person, I kept a lot of it because "it might be useful" or "somebody else might find it useful" or "I could give it away on Freecycle" or "I could sell it on Ebay". And I did none of the above. None.

The effort and stress of listing something on Ebay has obviously been too great for me to summon up the energy to do. Likewise for Freecycle. This gives me much guilt, because putting things into landfill when they could be recycled is BAD. BAD KA! BAD BAD BAD! I have thus been caught between feeling guilty if I threw it away, and feeling stressed if I didn't. Because Stuff Taking Up Space is getting to really stressful levels for me. I have all these craft materials! I need to put them somewhere! I'm running out of space!

I have finally said "enough!" (or "too much", really). Forget Ebay. Forget Freecycle. Forget them all. One phone call, and I have booked a Hard Rubbish collection. My hope is that people round about will take at least some things off the pile before it gets collected by the Local Council. Shove my guilt, the stress has just gotten TOO MUCH. Stuff it!

So. Hard rubbish. Today I've been going around the house gathering stuff and clearing away stuff. Hopefully my nephew will help me tomorrow to put heavy things outside on the kerb.

It will be good to get rid of it all.
