Strategy No. 3: Edit as You Excavate
Decide what to toss, what to donate to charity, what’s so nice it should go back into the house, and what to sell. The garage mountain became tidy piles; the one called “sell on eBay” grew and grew.
Reuse what you can. The steel shelving moved across the garage, near the kitchen door. It’s now the headquarters for the sell-on-eBay pile. If Christy and Henry can keep their vow to purge, the shelving will soon be sold, too.
