A Downsizing Move in Florida
De-cluttering is a process that happens in stages. In March, we went room-by-room to decide which large pieces she was taking and how she wanted to dispose of what she was not taking. Then we purged, tossed and sorted items for a moving sale, took trips to thrift stores to donate items, went to the recycle center. It was a busy and very productful March. The moving sale was a great success.
Now we are at a deeper level in September. Another moving sale is set for this Friday and Saturday; the garage is set up and full of antiques and other items to sell, all marked and ready to go. We have appointments with antique dealers who are coming here to preview before the sale and there will be relatives and friends here all week to review what my friend wants them to have.
Packing to move? Yes. One room is done and a second is partially done. We are on schedule. My friend is mentally ready to move so the purging and decision-making come realitively easy. Items get added to the moving sale just as they are about to go into a box. Well done!!
Each trash night is an adventure. Good thing they pick up trash here twice a week. Tonight's pick up will be a doozie - six huge trash bags and the recycle bin.
Letting go is an adventure I wish all of you could experience with the gusto and determination as this woman. She feels so good about giving to others the treasures she has so they, took can experience their joy. How about you?
