Does your house look like Moe's back yard?
« on: December 28, 2012, 08:47:17 AM »
I'm sure most of you have seen the episode of Storage Wars Texas where Moe Prigoff's back yard looks like an episode of hoarders. Moe had boxes and merchandise everywhere. When you're buying on a regular basis, it's easy to accumulate a lot of leftover stuff and disposing of it can sometimes be a challenge.

Has your house / property ever looked like Moe's back yard or have you ever been overwhelmed by leftover merchandise?

What steps do you take to eliminate the clutter and free up space?

Never that bad but I can see how it could happen. We sell most of our stuff on EBAY, Amazon and Craigslist. A couple times a year we do a huge garage sale to get rid of the leftovers.  Then we take a deep breath, box up everything that is left and put a free stuff ad up on craigslist with the stipulation that the taker takes it all. Sometimes it might require a couple trucks to take it but there is always someone out there who will race over to get it. It feels really good to start fresh once in a while.

Not seen it since don't watch Texas but I'm sure my yard does.  It was a forclosed property with a single wide and 2 large storage buildings.  Even after 5 years and 3 roll-off containers I have trash/junk everywhere.  Now add my auction buying with full sheds, 4 tarps, a trailer, and plastic bins stacked everywhere.  Yep - I qualify.

I'm sure when people come over they think I'm a horder.
