My garbage man will hate me in the morning.

Today, we went through and threw a lot of stuff away. We try to do this as often as we can and we still never seem to catch up. We found stuff that should have been pitched years ago. I shredded cancelled checks from 1994. I thought our bills and such were caught up but boy was I mistaken. I worked the shredder till exhaustion. I tried, in vain, to use this as an excuse to buy a wood chipper. Dw did not see the logic. We pitched (recycled) empty boxes that neither one of us could remember why we kept them. I had the old desk that I cut into small pieces. My shop contained more empty bags from seed, fertilizer, soil and others that were unidentifiable than I ever imagined. While it felt like a wasted day, it did make a big difference. I just don't see how we accumulate all of it.
