We are staying in her home and we have no place to put it in what space we have in her basement. We have no furniture other then bed, desk, couch / love seat & small dresser. we hardly have places for our own stuff. If we don't want it (right now) she wants to throw it away ( gloves, hats, lovely old handkerchiefs, family photos). She does this sometimes in the middle of breakfast and keeps at it till we go in her room with her.
Several years ago she & my father-in-law gave away a couple pieces of antique furniture without asking (thinking we would not want it) same goes for her aunt's dishes which we were able to rescue before they went to Goodwill.
