60. Just looking at the pictures
before I started reading the words I assumed she was a wildly disorganized seller.
But a buyer only? Unopened boxes? It's hard to think of what to say.

Years ago I had a client with a house so filled with things there were just narrow paths to walk through, boxes stacked high with "stuff". She became my client because of people's concern with her "things". The sheriff called to see if we could help her. She was old, sweet and obsessive.
It was a long. slow process and really some of it was tricking her into donating to people or causes that really "needed" what she had. But some of the boxes/bags were filled with musty/moldy clothing, books or magazines that were donated to trash piles.

Still she felt better to be helping voluntarily, felt proud she had saved them so they could be put to use.

This lady is years younger then that lady was...I can't imagine where she'll be in another thirty years.
