My lease is up in August, and my job situation is dire.
So, I have decided to move in with my Love. A thousand miles away. To his carriage house, two room apartment.
Thus, I must declutter almost everything.
I have one irreplacable piece of furniture that my grandfather built, a small half-round table. I also have two metal folding chairs, circa 1960, that were the original seating for a local music association. I worked for the association many years, and am a member still.
I have an unfinished table that can still be placd in its box. He has no kitchen or dining table, and this has drop sides and sits out 18 inches from the wall.
add a three-tier bookshelf that folds flat. I have a strong emotional attachment to it, but in a pinch it could go,too. To keep room for the metal folding chairs, for example.
The rest can get repurposed over the next few months, hopefully to organizations that help families in transition to housing.
I plan to get a layer of boxes in the Subaru. That's what I can take-- two layers of "beer" boxes. I will fill the rest of the car's space with kitchen pans, clothes, bedding and the furniture metioned above. I do have a luggage rack, but i'd prefer not to use it.
I have a layer of boxes in books alone, and lets not talk about my music collection....or all the canvases I've painted. Anyone else voluntarily shed 90 percent of what you own? Am I crazy to do this? Can it be done? If I blogged this, would you read?
