    I got rid of several newish hand towels that must be mostly polyester because they are completely non-absorbent. What is the point of having towels that are non-absorbant?

    I think towels must be 100% cotton.

    Nice! I know what you mean. I clean out a section of a room and when I look at the other section it feels like it has accumulated more items, but I swear I'm actually removing items from the house.

    Funny how that works, isn't it?
    I think the key to our cellar issue is to stop using it as a purgatorial way station for things that just really need to go out the door. Easier said than done!

    Boy, the purgatory issue is so true. I am going to spend a half a hour a day down there for the next month, see if I can't reduce the sheer number of stored things.

    Ugh, it's so cold down there.

    At work I used to have a purgatory status where I deliberately kept paper documents for what I thought would be a short time like six months to a year. If I didn’t need that information in it’s handy form after that time, I pitched it.

    This was for some key documents not for everything.

    We had a basement in Wisconsin where things went to die. After 14 years we moved and what a job. Now my husband has a huge shed and small garage. Luckily he goes out of town occasionally)

    We have an old, unfinished stone basement which is currently housing unused workout equipment. I think I'm going to start suggesting a clean-out in the spring. Gives me time to get people used to the idea.
