I agree about not throwing out grandma's papers and unidentified
photos but what do you do when storage space is at a premium? I am in
the process of moving from a three-bedroom farmhouse to a one-bedroom
apartment in a building that doesn't have storage units for the
residents. It's a challenge to sort out what I need -- what do I do
with the "extra stuff"? All suggestions gratefully received :-)
