My parents moved to my house more than three years ago. They had a large house and gave away some furniture, but there is still a lot of furniture and boxes of stuff that they moved to my basement, garage, and spare bedroom. My husband and I would like to dispose of (either sell or donate) and use the money for their care. The items won't yield much, but someone else could make use of them.
If I ask mother what to do with the furniture, of course she would want to keep it. Father would not know what I was talking about. Since parents have been here they have not used any of the items. There must be hundreds of dish towels, linens, tablecloths, cookware, etc. Most have never been used and still in the original wrapping.
We want our space back and would like to know how to handle this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
