Re: Great steps with DH and the house
Yes, that's the same boat my mom is in with her parents. They would be classified as hoarders. There isn't one wall of their basement that's not lined with sutff, and every room is packed and has literally a 2-foot wide path from room to room lined with boxes. Mom has been trying to clean out but unfortunately it would probably take years, and they don't have that many years left to even go through with her. So much of their history will be lost among the mountains of crap that wee just don't know what it is.
Luckily MIL was the opposite of a hoarder, very minimlaist, poor, and sparse, so her stuff fit loosely into one car bay of our garage. It was just a hard weekend for me and DH, but I'm glad we're through the bulk of it.
