Clearing Out 8

I mentioned on my Green+ Chic blog that we will be relocating sometime this year.  Because of recent developments in my health situation, we are taking a closer look at our plans.  One thing is for sure, we are cleaning house.

I have been on a decluttering mission for a few months now.  The “declutering” category on the On Simplicity blog has been a great motivator for me.  Since I started, I have given away about 50 books ( have several hundred left we will keep), several articles of clothing that were either raggedy or too big and taking up space and a few odds and ends.

Other items include:

-A few pieces of furniture we dont want to take with us due to weight or pieces we no longer need.
Records we are currently selling.  We have about 1,000 and many of them are worth quite a bit.  It may take us several months to sell them all, but it will be worth the time and energy.
-More books.  Most of the books are either totally useless for us at this point.
-Two sewing machines.  I will still have one for myself.
-One car that we dont want to take with us.
