“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill
Since our roof is still in the works, we have a large dumpster outside of our house. Tomorrow is likely the last day as the roof is very close to being done. I noticed that most of the clean-up work was completed and yet there was still space for garbage in the dumpster. One man’s trash is another man’s opportunity. This reminds me of when Jim Carey’s Grinch when he said “One man’s toxic sludge is another man’s potpourri.” I love that movie and I also love taking advantage of a great opportunity. You will see pictures of bigger items that we have been wanting to declutter for some time but we were just patiently waiting for the right time to pounce. It just so happened that time was tonight after we talked to our contractor and got the go ahead to fill up the rest of the dumpster. We did just that and it felt great! When you see an opportunity, take advantage of it even if your tired or it wasn’t a part of the plan, it will be worth it in the end.

Today’s decluttered item are some beaten up chairs we have been ready to get rid of. These are now sitting in the giant “dumpster of opportunity” outside our house. It’s great to finally get rid of them.
