Default Clearing the loft out!

We have exchanged contracts on the house and are set for completion on 29th September. I fly in 3 weeks with boys, husband follows after exchange, with daughter.

I thought I would leave him to clear loft and arrange for the shipping..........thank goodness I haven't.

Decided to empty the loft yesterday.....why, why, why have we kept all of this crap?

A plastic clock from Aunty Annie, given as a wedding present 21 years ago - not even worth taking to the car boot sale, old school text books with 'turn to page 39' in the front, when you turn to page 39 'you are a W****R, turn to page 100 - '****** ****** ** ****' turn to page XX, etc., trousers that my husband can hardly fit his legs into, let alone his waist, children's soft toys - complete with left on baby sick, old cot - why - already have 4 children and certainly no intention of having more - grandchildren, maybe - but last son decided he was hungry one night and one side has been totally gnawed!!, oh! and a goat skin rug which belonged to my husband before we met - he sat reminiscing for over an hour about this rug - dread to think about what!!??!!, LP's that my husband wants to buy a player for - our children spent the day absolutly creased up.

Looks like we will need a bigger container.

Anyone found anything exciting in their lofts and worth taking?

We have been sorting our loft for the anticipated move out of this house. Tried to go car boot again today- (aborted last week cos of rain ), when we arrived today found everyone had arrived early and there was no more space! So for a second week came home with a car load!
Sorted it out and will take some to charity shop tomorrow. Have put a few items on ebay and have put 7 items onto 'freecycle'- within 5 mins they had been 'taken' and will be collected tomorrow!What a fantastic site it is.
So a good day after all the hassle this morning. I'm too embarrassed to tell you all the junk we had!
