Nostalgic Cleaning

I was helping my dad clean out his garage over the weekend. It's amazing the things this man still owns. We found boxes of old computer components, games, and even a couple of tape drives. He also had boxes of comic books from when he was a kid and baseball cards. I'm helping him to sell his treasures on ebay. It was a nice trip down memory lane. I even found a couple of my old items I had as a kid.

I hope I never have to help clean out my dad's garage! He's a mechanic and it's so chock full of tools and his toys. Thinking about it just makes me tired.

Oh I get nothing done when I do cleaning like that. I get too caught up in the "stuff" and memories. Then I have a bigger mess than before :)

We had to clean out my parents house to get it ready to sell and OH MY GOD. The amount of stuff my father had collected....just boxes of very weird things for "just in case" situations. And don't get me started on mom! She had every card she--and me, my brother, father and gradmother--- had ever received since she was like 5.

That's nice you're are going through his stuff together. It is fun finding those "treasures" from our youth!

Being a sentimental person, I will not sell them on ebay. Maybe I will wrap or frame them up as they are cherished memories.

I too get nostalgic when rediscovering treasures of the past...

Will you post a link to the stuff you will sell on ebay? I'd love to check it out :)

I also start clearing some old stuff in my bed room.
I am new to ebay, I just list three items to sell, yet to see the outcome.
Nice to know you are selling things on ebay.
Have a nice day.

sounds so much like my mom. She's a pack rat. She's in the process of moving and she's not loving it ONLY because she's got lots of "junk".

The best part is when you find you old diary when you was 10 by accident. Look at the handwriting..fancy girl thing. And look you also write about one handsome boy in the class. Hmm better keep it from Mr. Hubby hahah...
