How to get rid of "nice things" you've inherited?

The restaurant is still in business. We only went there once.

It seems a good time to repost this title, that has had a big influence on me. (A friend that hear stories of my mother, who died just before I retired, gave it to me as a retirement gift… so insightful, and funnier than I expected) The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning | Book by Margareta Magnusson | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

Thanks! I’ve heard of it . I think they may have gone there but not sure. The Union Market area is interesting.

Colorado_mom - thanks! With Swedish background, I should really read that! I’m trying to move into Scandinavian minimalist mode and have a fair ways to go LOL. :smile:

It’s a fast and easy/enjoyable read. I’d send you my copy, except I already shipped it off to my sister.

Thank you for the book suggestion. I checked out the audiobook from the library in the spirit of not bringing one more thing into the house. It’s only about 3 hours long, read by Juliet Stevenson. I listened to it on my walk and afterward during my cleaning frenzy.

That sounds like something my mother would have done. My grandmother actually chose my silver pattern before I was born and gave me some piece(s) of sterling for every birthday and Christmas.

I did register for some Lenox china in a simple white-on-white pattern that was discontinued before I could replace the pieces that were broken in various moves. It’s shocking how much the prices can increase once a pattern is no longer in production.
