More Purging

In the past couple of weeks, we've gotten rid of a lot of material objects.  We decided early on that we were only going to keep the things that were really important to us or that we really loved.  Everything else we'd sell, donate or give away to friends.  Our storage unit is only 5x10 (I think) and it'll be just enough room for the two chairs, dresser, chest and books we are keeping.  Oh, and our camping stuff and B1's snowboarding stuff.  We've purged our:

Dining room table
8 Dining room chairs
1 Kitchen cart
Kitchen table & 2 chairs
Filing cabinet
Corner curio cabinet
Small dresser
12 Lanterns (from our wedding)
1 Lobster trap (also from our wedding)
Glass sea balls, monkeys fists and candle holder (you guessed it, from our wedding)
An entire wall of picture frames (really-a huge wall of frames)
5 mirrors
Heavy mixing bowls (glass)
Tupperware (I gave it away by giving people homemade squash bisque with the condition they had to keep the container!)
Used bath products (yes, really-I was amazed!)
Coffee table
2 Lamps
Half round side table
1 Large kitchen cart
Bags and bags (and bags and bags) of clothing
Oh...and one of our cars!

We still have to get rid of our sofa and chaise lounge and our tv cabinet and lots of little things that I'm sure we don't even know we have yet!  It amazes me that we have so much left even after giving away all of that crap!  It is funny around here though-we have no tables and chairs, and no lamps or side tables.  So putting things down (like my purse, grocery bags, MAIL) when we come into the house is...interesting.

So, if you're in our area and you need a sofa and chaise lounge, please come take it. :)
