Here's the new study arrangement: a big desk, leather chair, and reading lamp from Ikea. All the battered old furniture went to the dump or the Salvation Army. When we returned from our 12 weeks out west, we could really see how bad it looked. We also purged a lot of old saved paper -- our recycle bin runneth over. No hoarders here. Well, not counting the closets in the attic. The living area of the attic is also very much cleaner now.
