My current situation is a house with a combination of my excessive number of items, my recently marrried's belongings, and my deceased father's excessive number of items. I'm not sure what's left that belonged to my dad. He died nearly 2 years ago. You'd think his stuff was gone or being actively used but we continue to run across his belongings.

19. Bags, inserts, other paper trash. I made another pile and threw them away. It counts because I'm getting rid of stuff that was previously taking up some of my living space.
20. A cordless telephone. Needs a battery but otherwise lovely.
21. A manual lawnmower
22. Book, My Utmost for His Highest
