My brother/business partner and I have said for quite a while that we needed to scale back on the amount of "stuff" we keep at our warehouse. You know how it goes....you have some stuff left over after building a house such a bag of grout, a few pieces of baseboard trim, maybe a couple of closet rods, so you just dump it in the warehouse and tell yourself you'll use it on the next house. But of course you don't. Then before you know it you've got so much stuff crammed in there you can't walk. That's where we are now.
One morning earlier this week we cleaned out a bunch of worthless things like some signs with bent legs painted in our old color scheme. Why in the world were we keeping those? We filled up half a dumpster! Now we're into old files. We have about 15 boxes of old files, check stubs, bank statements, etc that go back before 2000. I found a shredding company that will be at a local high school Saturday morning with their big truck shredding stuff in exchange for a donation to the school's band program. Deal!
Next we're going to move to a closer warehouse space (now that we're building further north as our city grows that direction) and get one a bit smaller, too. I like being organized and uncluttered. Next I need to work on some personal stuff I've been dragging around that needs a new home. I'm thinking Craig's List.
Have a great weekend, everyone. ;)
