no end to the stuff in this house??
Let me warn you it will only get worse by the decade!
How people my age can ever move into a retirement village or even a granny flat is inexplicable.

Oh dear. Is there any hope for me?

Re: no end to the stuff in this house??
Of course there is hope for you. All you have to do is ruthlessly chuck out anything you haven't used for two years. That's what I kept getting told.
Too easy - except I haven't learned how to do it.
Suggest you do as I say and not as I do. Deep belly laughs!

2 years... That sounds easier than the 1 year I keep hearing. Maybe if I start with 5 years, I'll be able to do it.

We moved some stuff that we hadn't used since the last move (three years ago). Of course, one of the reasons it wasn't used was because I couldn't find it...

No, there is no end, on account of my hired miscreants, who break into your house in the dead of night and replace all the stuff you get rid of with innocent-looking boxes (artificially hand-aged) full of mysteriously anonymous items, which you ... can't be quite sure you didn't put there. Ahahahaha, etc.

That explains a lot.

Yesterday I went through a pile of house related brochures and chucked at least half them. On the way back from the recycling box, I spotted some stuff Dad was giving away and claimed it. It's at least twice the size of the stuff I got rid of. Oops.
