Randall Beach: Giving away my Davy Crockett cap made me a better man – The Middletown Press


“The joy project” in our New Haven home is now more than a year old and chugging into 2018 as a renewal of our New Year’s resolution.In January of last year, my wife and I, having looked around our “empty nest” at all the unneeded books, DVDs, CDs, clothing and tchotchkes, vowed to begin de-cluttering.Our resolution: every day, each of us would select an item and put it aside to donate to the Goodwill store in Hamden or a used bookstore, etc.We were a little worried, as we began our project in January 2017, that we would start to run out of things we obviously didn’t need any more and by the end of the year, it would start to hurt as we continued to “weed out.”Well, that didn’t happen, at least not on most days.
