In my June update it was all about preparing to move to Tampa, Florida. That's on hold for now and if/when we do move it may end up being a coastal area closer to home so I can more easily manage the rental properties. Still, I have been unloading possessions.
- I've made the most progress in the apparel department. I donated a huge bag of clothes in November and have sold a few one-offs to a friend. I even sold my friend some of the nicer towel sets in my linen closet. I still have way more clothes than I need and my ultimate goal is to only own 5-7 interchangeable outfits. In other words, 5-7 shirts, 5-7 pair of pants or shorts or jeans, 5-7 pair of socks, etc.
- I sold the second TV. Since our major source of entertainment is streaming Netflix there are no plans to unload the one TV I still have. Though it's not a "thing", I did cancel the physical DVD part of my Netflix subscription when they jacked up the price this fall.
- When the refrigerator died I replaced it with one 40% smaller.
The adventure continues. I am about to get serious about selling the Cartier bracelets, which represents the last major material possession I own. There is also a large but broken china cabinet in the garage that I've been using for storage. My mom gave it to me when she moved a few years ago and she doesn't want it back. I mostly took it because she asked me to (the new place was smaller and it wouldn't fit anywhere). It has to go.
I need to think hard about what else I can dispose of. It feels good to let go of things I don't need or value.
