Motivational Monday - Cleaning Up My Hoarded Mess

Remember this picture?   When I talked about having a pole building sale?  Well, that is what I have been busy working on.  

Honestly, I posted a date on my business FB page that said on Tuesday, October 28 I would have a sale from 6-9 p.m.  I did that when my building still looked like that.

I did this on purpose to hold myself accountable to making me work on that mess.  I knew I wouldn't get it all ready - as it took YEARS to get like this.  I was overwhelmed with "where do I start?"

I just started in the corner, behind the door and just did it.  I set a goal of "to the second window" and put up a make shift wall to block the back portion.  I have to tell you, I am pleased with the amount I have accomplished. 

I know that I could sell these items at one of my three antique booths - however, I need to make room!  I have had to turn down an exceptional estate buyout, due to lack of room.  I plan to mark these items so that a picker or dealer can still make some profit on them.   What doesn't sell, I will clean up and mark for one of booths.  The rest will make it to the burn pile or Goodwill - I do not want to rebox what I have already gone through.    

Truthfully, to make room for this sale we did fill both the horse trailer and cargo trailer with boxes of smalls....I have no idea what all is in them.  I wanted to get to some of these boxes for this sale, but I am running out of time.  At least the trailers will now fit in the pole building for the winter.

I have NOT wanted to deal with this mess for years.  I LOVE buying and I am lucky to have such a nice building to store items in.  I need to make this space work FOR me not AGAINST me.   

I know many of my Motivational Monday posts are about making me do things I don't want to do.  Maybe I am the only one...but, once I just start, the momentum takes over and "it" motivates me to push on.  

If you have something you have been procreating, just get started.  No progress will be made just thinking about it.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
