Our 30 yard dumpster is mostly full. I kept it 3 weeks overdue (I know from experience they don’t usually charge the full rate). I wanted it FULL! S1 added some remodel junk from his house and ours included a barn, shed, everything we could get from the house, and storage units.
Had a contractor out to see about building a small loft in the barn for storage. I can move totes home and go through them more leisurely. I know I can pitch/donate more, as I was in a rapid downsize from 6000 SF, a fast forced sale, and going through 55 years of emotional weight. Yes, my mom had not thrown out anything from my childhood, and I had done the same with my kids. I tell my kids, “Do NOT do this.” It doesn’t matter if you have the room. Purge along the way.
