Removing Old Stuff

We have been out at the family house, trying to clean out some of the years of dust and accumulated items.  It's seems that people who grew up in the 40's & 50's survived by holding on to things they might need later.  This is the scenario here, with almost everything you can imagine stashed here and there for safe keeping.  The years has mounted a large amount of dust and it's something that will be hard to manage even after we've cleaned it up.  The house is very old and along with it comes the dust and creaky boards.  Walking in and moving one thing starts you to sneezing from the cloud of dust that saturates the air.  We are very overwhelmed from all the stuff that we are having to get rid of.  There's many years of life entwined in this hoard of items.  If the walls could speak, I'm afraid of some of the tales they would spew out.
