Three rules for packing and downsizing

The closet is clean! It took 2 days. It's amazing what you accumulate in your closet. Tomorrow is my last day at work. I'm sad but excited to not have that added stress on top of preparing for this move. I talked to my mom today, and we came up with 3 rules for packing and downsizing your home:
  1. If you haven't seen or used it in a year, throw it away or donate it.
  2. If it's torn, stained, scratched up, or damaged in some other way, throw out or donate.
  3. If you can buy it again cheap at Wal-Mart or Costco (or your equivalent), throw out or donate.

I feel like these are pretty solid rules. Some of you may have to get your spouses to sign an agreement for this. You know who they are...because clearly they don't or you wouldn't need to write it down.

I need a good electrician in the Sugar Land/Missouri City area. Anybody know of one?


  1. You should have a garage sale to make a little extra money before you donate the stuff you can't sell.

    1. If only there was time. Can't have a garage sale when you are showing your house! :o)

  2. This morning, Lynne was showing me something on Google Earth, and we happened upon Scotland. Scotland, Texas, that is. As far away as it is from Houston, it's the same difference. We're sure gonna miss you at the office, my friend. Love ya!

    1. I'll miss you all too! Keep in touch... and I'm not just saying that b/c it's what you say when you leave. I mean it.


I am happy to hear from you!
