Bonnie Erickson offers a great reminder to declutter before taking photos of your for sale home.
They include taking pictures of your own purse which you dropped on the table in order to take the picture; leaving the toilet seat open; magnets on the fridge; etc.
Which reminds me of a time when my friend Eric lived on Grand Ave near Pier One. I was in college in Fairbank at the time and was sporting a decent afro. One day, I picked it out, took a picture of it, and sent a copy to Eric. He put it on is refrigerator.
Jump ahead a few years. Eric moves out. I’m at Billy’s on Grand and run into another friend of mine from high school who tells me that he recently saw me on the refrigerator of an apartment he was checking out just down the block.
So, another reason to declutter is to avoid leaving afro photos behind when you end up moving.
