Preparing to sell the house

We are in the process of getting our house ready for sale. We have more painting to do. Inside the hallway needs painting. Outside the window trim and decks and porches need painting. The new deck needs the railing put on.

Upstairs we need to drywall, and add knee walls to the new living area. Then to paint the entire area.

It is not good weather for the outside work. It has been pouring down rain and hailing and being cold.

So in the mean time I am starting to sort through our things and down size some. How does a family accumulate so much stuff?

I am going to take it one step at a time. I am starting with the bedroom and the extra clothing and bedding. Some things that are new or nearly new will be put on ebay for sale. Other things will be donated, or thrown on the burn pile.

It will be so good to get rid of all the extra stuff. I am looking forward to my new house being organized and not overstuffed with extra belongings. How many sheets does a person really need for their bed? I have decided on two changes of sheets per bed is all I will keep. And two blankets per bed. The rest will be donated to family or a charity.

One of the major things we will be packing up are books. We love our books. Most of them are educational or informative. Like how to books and the like.

Now I must be off here to actually do some work.
