Great tips! We're getting ready to sell our house, downsize and build OUR dream house... but before we can get there, we have to go through two lifetimes of accumulated stuff. I'm dreading it... there's so much I have that my parents have bought me -- even though I never use it any more -- that I know is going to be tough to get rid of.
I do just need to suck it up, decide if I'm really going to miss this stuff, and look to the future. Thanks for the timely article and the reminder that it's this stuff that made me who I am, and it's just stuff!
