slow and steady

I am starting to appreciate how easy it is to accumulate stuff and how hard it is to decide what to do with said stuff when you move. I have an amazingly large collection of books, an abundance of glass & pottery collected over the course of many years that are ever so hard to decide what is worth packing...though I am going with "can it be replaced?" I am going to be staying at a smaller place for a couple of months and then who knows where, thus trying to really move as little as possible!
I am amazed at the things that I feel I can't part with, the furniture is easy, but the art& knick knacks are killing me! I have until June 7th, but my goal is to be out of this place by May 31 so it is only about a month to get it all done...oh my.
Just breathe and focus on something each day...that is my mantra!

  1. It is really hard to decide what to keep when you're downsizing! I always keep the special stuff and let the practical stuff go...practical stuff can always be replaced! However, I guess some would say that's not a very practical thing to do... :)

    Have a happy day!
