Discovered the backing of my rugs had turned into fine powder, which has prompted a multi-week cleaning project.

I’ve been trying to reduce my clutter. I have boxes full of stuff I should be going through. The major thrust of the project so far involved rearranging my living room into a more open configuration. Now I’m getting into the…what do I throw out phase. I’m going to have to make some hard choices. I got rid of a broken bookcase for which Ikea no longer offers replacement parts.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to part with things?
