Today I spent hanging pictures, curtain rods, and adjusting the furniture to be "just right". I also took out several bookcases/cabinets already. Nerga breeding grounds.
There is an unofficial swap spot next to the recycle dumpster in the garage where people leave things that are not needed but are perfectly usable. I got a nice area rug for my guest room there and I have dropped off a few things as well. Whenever I look again, my stuff has gotten adopted by a new home. It's a nice system.
