But now that the holidays have past and the most special of holidays the Superbowl, we decided to start doing some cleaning out this weekend and we started in the attic. It is pretty overwhelming going through 26 years of papers and personal things that belonged to your children, siblings, parents and grand parents. What do you do with all of these things? Who do you give it to? Who wants it? What do you throw away? What do we take with us to Belize? Anyone have a bulldozer we can borrow?
We started with cleaning out one corner of the attic, which held many boxes with years of tax returns and these are our least sentimental items. I thought I should shred all of our tax information and bank statements before I trashed them, so I pulled out our handy dandy shredder and let it rip. It says right on the top of the shredder 6 pages max, but don't believe everything you read, that was not true and it over heated many times. So I would have to wait and let the shredder cool down and then I would start again. 7 extra large trash bags later and many hours, we were done.
After, wow it looks pretty empty there in that space.
Oops, looks like we missed one box stuck back there in the back, oh well back to the shredder.
