Scott: That’s the last bag. Help me put these into the truck. I want to get these to the thrift store before they stop taking donations for the day.

Nancy: Hold on! That bag has curtains in it.

Scott: I know they do. Those old curtains have been sitting around in the closet for 10 years. It’s time to let them go.

Nancy: But what about this bag? These are the children’s old baby clothes. You can’t just toss these! They have such sentimental value.

Scott: You’ve kept a lot of the children’s old clothes already, but we still have bags and bags of them in the attic.

Nancy: Yes, but they’re so cute.

Scott: It’s time to put aside sentiment and do some spring cleaning. After all, we’re donating them to a good cause. Families visiting the thrift store can buy them for their own children. We get a tax deduction and our items get a new life. It’s a win-win for everybody.

Nancy: I don’t know about that. What?! You’re not getting rid of those chairs, are you? They still have a lot of life in them.

Scott: Our garage is so full of old furniture that we don’t use. I’m putting my foot down. These have to go.

Nancy: But not those...

Scott: Yes, those and those and those. This is my punishment for marrying a pack rat!
