When we moved into our current house, we had the movers stage everything in the garage and then we slowly moved stuff in bit by bit. Trouble was we decided on new furniture, new (fewer) bookshelves, etc. So much of the stuff is still in the garage 10 years later. <sigh> ....

Moving

Someone told me years ago that we all should be required to move every 7 years. Anything still in boxes 7 years later you don't move again.

That would make it easy to move, less easy to maintain some history. There are prized possessions out in some of those boxes, just waiting for a spot. The right spot. Not just any spot.

Sadly I have to move my mom into assisted living. Talk about how to deal with all the stuff! Probably an estate sale in the future.

I have been there it hurts

I have moved my Grandmother once and then went through everything after her death later. What do you do with 96 years of history. We also had to go through on everything with my Mom prior to assisted living. A few special items are kept along with the pictures but it really makes you sad......

HOLY COW! NOW THAT'S A CHEVY! Was going to tell you to go with the VETTE, but heck, that baby there looks sweeeeeet!!!
Had the opportunity to drive/store/enjoy a corvette for awhile about 3 years ago. 60th anniversary edition. WOW. Best memory I have of it,, was on a 4 lane hwy in rural north central MO and came to a turn-off in the median to turn around and head back south (was traveling north), and a car (old mustang- nothing special) pulled out and was in the right lane as I u-turned and headed south in the left lane, they gunned it, I waited... I gunned it, BYE BYE. The look on their faces as I blew by them, priceless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
