Ugghh! Is there any job more horendous than packing up a house to move? My grandparent’s have been renting a small house for the past 8 years or so. The yard which was perfect for Papa to putter around in 8 years ago is now becoming to much to take care of and the time has come for them to move into something smaller where all the maintenance is taken care of by someone else. Hence, THE MOVE.
It is amazing how much a person can accumulate it a short period of time, isn’t it? Before the move into the house in town, they had an auction to try to pare down as much as possible, but there are always things of sentimental value (to no one but you) that for whatever reason you must hold onto. In bringing stuff up from the basement I found boxes of junk good stuff that had never been unpacked from the first move, but are still to “precious” to get rid of.
The apartment they are moving into has less storage space then this house they have now so it will be interesting to see how they get everything in there. This move has caused me to take a good look at some of the things I have laying around my house and wonder- What can I get rid of that I don’t really need?
