Among the heap of stuff that has been in a corner of the basement since my daughter moved out, there is a baby gate. One of my daughter’s friends gave it to her in 2014 to keep her new puppy in or out of rooms. Now she has no use for it because the dog is full grown and reasonably well trained. But some of my daughter’s friends have babies, so I didn’t want to get rid of the gate without asking. I thought one of her friends might want it.

My daughter came home for a visit this weekend; and of course when I finally got around to asking about the gate, her friends were not at all interested in it. So, off it goes to charity. As for the other stuff my daughter is supposed to take, hopefully she can fit it all in her car when she departs. Though, I am not sure about that because she brought home lots of laundry to do!

About Clutter Comedy: Every Sunday (which I envision as a day of rest after a productive week of de-cluttering) I post a Clutter Comedy article describing my most memorable clutter discovery of the week. Other bloggers who wish to join in are welcome—just post a link in the comments! There’s no need to publish any “before” photos of your clutter, if they are too embarrassing. The idea is simply to get motivated to clean it up, while having a bit of fun too!
