Have stuff that you understand you may promote fast and for a superb value? Record it on-line so its not taking on room within the storage.

Keep in mind, the extra of the home contents you promote or give to another person, the extra you might be protecting out of a landfill or having to haul to the dump.

Keep in mind the final time you moved? That was a ache within the ass proper?

What are you taking with you, what are you throwing away, what are you giving to your folks, what are you promoting.

Loretta has spent virtually 3 days taking photos off the partitions, out of frames, and placing them into picture albums as a result of there isn’t practically as a lot wall house within the camper as there may be in the home, and storing them in totes within the basement of the RV is certain to break them.

We have now a complete home stuffed with furnishings that wants a brand new dwelling as properly because the RV is totally furnished, so what can we do with all of that?
