Clearing the Boxes
We mostly went through a “keep or curb” mindset, trying to separate out things we wanted to store vs. things we were willing to give away (and put on the sidewalk).
I had a large collection of old PS3 games (that don’t work in a PS4), that I ended up putting to the curb. Amazingly, they sat out there for nearly the whole day… and didn’t get snatched up until late Sunday morning.
After a quick check, we realized the batteries were still good.
And then things kind of got out of hand for a little while.
Neither of us were keeping score, but I’m pretty sure I won.
An open area, after a lot of repacking and reorganizing. Not show: a larger path is opened up to the right, with even more space cleared.
One of the many boxes we found contained a lot of old bottles. This bit of espresso flavored vodka was part of a custom drink we had for our wedding, dubbed The Second Wind.
As a splurge, we went out to run some errands and picked up fresher ingredients…
… and made some second winds for ourselves, to celebrate a long day of house work.
