Moving just sucks. I have to do it so my goal until the final push just prior to my becoming homeless, though I kinda will be moving into two homes: my truck camper and my sailboat, is to pack two boxes every day.
As part of that packing I’m finding things to gift to friends and donate to charity. Besides a good quantity of clothing, bed linens and electronics I’ve shrunk my personal library by 300+ books (still have close to 900).
My slow packing means I’m organizing things and logging each box’s contents into a spreadsheet so, if needed, I can find something prior to being into another place. Almost all of my stuff will be stored as my near-term combined living space will be a generous 161 sq. ft. – boat is 17′ x 7′ and camper is 6′ x 7′ (not including the camper’s bed as it can’t be used for storage when the roof is down).
With all things being stored if I don’t ‘miss the stuff’ after this spring/summer/fall another ‘purge’ will happen when/if I move into another home/apartment/cave.
