Easiest done to give stuff away that is unneeded if a friend mentioned he needs it.
Tried to sort out my house worth of years and years of random stuff, some sentimental, some good ideas but never cared for, life got busy, some stuff I found new in boxes but the kids already lost interest. I got to combine stuff and then give it up.
It was too overwhelming to sort it out all in one, so I started step by step with parts of one room last year. But there was still so much left and so little progress. I got tired.
Once we decided on moving I cleaned out all the stuff put it in a box and then slowly took out the stuff we still needed on a daily basis. That way it was way easier and I didn't have to give up anything. I just got to keep all the things that where needed.
For the move I just packed the things in the moving box that where on the shelves. Easy. And then again just unpacked the things we really used, which was then the third step in this long process.
It feels great to not feel that stuffy. Stuffication is real!
