The joy of moving! I am currently going through clothes I can't wear anymore and deciding what is special and what to give away. One of my sister is a hoarder and now one of my neighbor is a hoarder. I am working it one day at time.

Wow, good luck with the move prep! That sounds like a great motivator.

I am struggling. 6 years ago I decided to redo a room. I moved all the furniture into another room and hall, making those spaces unusable. I never finished the room. When my father died this year, I moved a bunch of his stuff into that half finished room for sorting.

So now I have a half finished room that has so much stuff in it I can't finish it. The room I moved all the furniture into - you can't even walk through it. There isn't even a path. I have stuff on my list like 'finish redoing room' but where am I supposed to put this stuff? It's so overwhelming. I wish I had finished the room shortly after I started.

I feel the same way! That is like my bedroom closet.

Good luck with the move, Rechu! Buffy1, I hope you are making some headway with your closet. I am not opening mine at the moment because I have too much other stuff to toss first, but mine are in a similar state and I know I could toss a lot.

I somehow crammed most of the contents of the unfinished room into a different space and have made significant progress towards finishing by working on it for a small amount of time every day.

I was also able to give some nice things I really don't need or use to a friend who will get some use out of them.

I am thinking about trying to sell a few things on eBay but am not sure it's worth the hassle. Has anyone tried selling on there recently?

Exciting news - my room renovation is basically done - a few odds and ends, some paint touch ups here and there - but I could start moving furniture back in TODAY.

I'm going through my clothes and putting what is keepsake and ruin and give away.

I just got rid of the last piece of my bed and replace it with a new bed. It was hard not to get rid of it. Because I have sentimental attachment to it
