If You Give a Homeowner a Dumpster…

If you are a parent, you probably have read the children's book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

We need to replace a damaged front door, frame and all.  For that purpose we rented a dumpster.  The door was fixed in a few days but we have the dumpster until Monday.

If you give a homeowner a dumpster, it is amazing how much stuff you suddenly feel needs to be expelled from the house.  Stuff you thought you were "storing" for future use.

All the chairs with the broken this and that, the boxes with half used this and that, the pumps that used to work and all of the other stuff that people asked if they could put there, but are no longer around to bring it away.

There is still room in the box and it is only Sunday.  Hmmmm.
