Too Lazy To Clean Out?

November 13th, 2015 · 4 Comments

Here we have a messy house.  Either two things happened:  the seller is a messy person and doesn’t care how the house looks when selling or the renters moved out with their stuff left behind and the seller didn’t bother to clear it out before selling.

Now this mess becomes the buyer’s problem.

Hold on, maybe this was an estate sale.  The owner died or went to a nursing home?  Then it becomes the family’s burden to remove the stuff before selling.

The buyer discounts her/his offer to reflect the cost of trash removal.

The seller or seller’s family then gets less money on the sale.

Macramé & Latch Hook Rugs Were Popular In the 1970s

August 8th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Macramé was a popular craft activity in the 1970s.  Many different knots to learn.  Colored beads to add.  I helped my mom make macramé hangings when I was a kid.
