My brother and I have been trying to clean out an 83 year old dead artist's condo. My brother's philosophy was to get it done quickly rather than save or donate the contents of the apartment beyond the obvious stuff of value. So a lightly used Ethan Allen convertible was loaded into the 30 yard dumpster together with two 10 year old Apple/Mac computers. How would others handle something like this in one of the more expensive NY area suburbs? Obviously if you hold on to stuff you may get cluttered up with decreased function in your own life. His job was to clean it out and get it in paintable condition. I prevailed on him to do at least a half dozen bags of appliances, kitchenware, clothing, etc. taken to Goodwill. But a great deal more ended up ditched in the dumpster.
