Many years later, I have a full house. I don’t mean three cards of the same face value along with a pair of identical value, which I had to look up! But, furniture for five rooms. I have been donating clothes to a thrift shop and posting some dishes, as well as excess sewing material and teaching supplies on freecycle for about a year. I drop books in the little book boxes on poles. With one exception, I have felt good about the give-away. My standard for eliminating things ranged from what-was-I-thinking, to, it will take another 75 years to sew all the cloth and read all the books.
