It's been a hard days night and I'll be sleeping like a log...

That's all I could think of when I finished packing solidly these two Bagsters.  The job continues of clearing out a home that has been well lived in for many, many years. 
I read about this large bag on Miss Mustard Seeds blog and thought this would solve my problem,  Well, it sort of did, it's not as large as I'd hoped so I had to get two, now I have to wait for pick-up and hope the neighbors don't add to my load.,  It's not cheap and they don't take just  everything, so I still need to arrange for large items to be removed and paints and cleaning stuff is yet another hassle.  There are a number of rules to all of this disposal of life products, really more than a person of my advanced years would like.  Thank heavens for little boys that grow up and are strong men, (wish they drove a truck).  Handy Andy was confined to the garage and pulling nails, since he can't pack a decent load of trash, I'll be sweeping that driveway once everything is removed, and probably picking up nails.  Wait till he sees the bill!  My motto is if you can't or won't do a good job you need to pay the bill!

Anyway thought I'd pass along some of my expertise on disposal.

I've seen bags like this advertised on tv. Sorry you're having to go through this! I'd help if I lived close by.

I've never seen bags like that. What a sorrowful task to have to undertake.

You are in my mind, Dear Irene, but what I'm moaning about is the state of our (large) yard, which gets little more than the grass mowed on any kind of regular basis. And now that everything is growing again, the back out by the pool, beyond the retaining wall and going right up to the fence, is a JUNGLE. I cannot do yard work for any amount of time, and honestly I don't even know how. TG can do it but he works long hours and nobody expects him to do that when he gets home. BUT he is not willing to hire anyone to do it. I hate to go behind his back and do that, but it's coming to that, and soon. I can't even think about the house -- attic, garage, et cetera -- although I certainly should. Good for you getting the bags; I didn't know about those. I'll have to do something similar and it should be sooner rather than later. xoxo

wow, you really got those two guys stuffed full. Been wondering about those bag thingys, but we have free pick up once per month on 3rd Monday of the month (the size of a pickup truck bed and about 3 feet high. They will take most things, but not paint. The dumpster divers like to come haul stuff off so it's always interesting to see how much is left for the garbage trucks. Happy Mother's Day this weekend.
