We've done a lot of work on our storage shed. We threw out piles and piles of rubbish, and also gave away someitems and clothes. One of the rewards for this was (apart from the newly freed storage space) getting to know our local second-hand store, where we found some real bargains, such as a printer we got for 15 shekels (something like 4$). I have no idea how it ended up there, as it looks hardly used and it works really well. My husband also pointed out that this is a laser printer with various functions beside printing such as fax and scanner; it's much better than a regular printer because it's much more economical when it comes to ink costs.
Here's a picture of some of the junk we got rid of.
I wish I could say we now have much more storage space but it wouldn't be entirely truthful. In fact our storage shed looks much like it did before, mainly because it now stores many of the things we used to have piled up in the house. But of course, it means the house looks more spacious now, and when you live in a tiny like ours (only two bedrooms), you can imagine how important that is! I was finally able to put away our pots and dishes, stocks of toilet paper and detergents, and also plan to put away the clothes Shira has already outgrown.
I can't stand having ugly, unused junk in the house. The more things you have, the more you are enslaved by them because they demand upkeep and cleaning and give nothing in return. Therefore, I'm a huge proponent of throwing away or giving away whatever you don't need. It literally gives more room to breathe.
