My loft is ram packed full and I need a new roof. There's a 6 week wait for the roof with the roofing company I've chosen so I've started clearing it out. In three hours, I've made a small but significant dent in the amount of stuff I have. 7 washer loads later and said clothing is now dry, folded and in charity bags. I've clearly been something of a hoarder since the mid 90's!
I have to say here that around 40% of the contents of the loft is eBay stock as I used to sell on the site, but haven't been able to this year due to health problems, Brexit, fees etc etc so I've not bothered. I don't know if I'll pick back up on it or not, but I want the stock gone (a job lot or two might or might not work). I can't afford to give over £1500 worth of stock away.
What's the best way to clear the loft out? Setting fire to my roof space is not an option (THIS WAS A JOKE!!!!!!!) and neither is hiring a skip and binning the lot. Am I doing the right thing by going through one box or bag at a time? The bins are full and I'll have to go round charity shops on Monday, offering bags of stuff and requesting more empty bags.
Please tell me there's a better way!
