Trying to look at the bright side of things - Moving is good for reducing your collection of "things." This is unless you're in such a hurry that you throw everything into boxes and hope for the best.
I've moved a few times in my life. I start out with the intention of being meticulous and going though the "keep, throw and donate" piles. I started out well. I've made three trips to the good will and have donated a plethora of items to the "neighborhood garage sale." On the lower east side this is when you place your unwanted items out on the curb and wish them the best. Thus far I've unloaded several pieces of framed art (yes, I called them pieces, not works as they were just that), a pretty little table, baby gate, shelving until, books - books and more books, and miscellaneous swag items from my various jobs.
The good will has received more than 100 items of clothing, 10 pair of shoes and all of the random "stuff" not taken in the neighborhood.
Even with all of this donating I still managed to pretty much fill a Two-men and a truck, truck. YIKES!
Thank goodness for movers however, this was the first time I had the luxury of movers and they were a true God send. I feel bad for them having to carry all of the books that I did not donate. This also makes me thankful for electronic files. ;)
Now, while I'm blogging my wonderful fiance is packing up the remaining misfit items. He's throwing everything in boxes and they join the "hope for the best" of being unpacked -- eventually...
