So the first time I did this, I had the not-so-brilliant idea of hiring the cheapest movers I could find. To the surprise of no one, it was a complete shit show that I won’t bother getting into. Fast forward to now. I am selling or donating everything except the clothes off my back, plus the rest of my clothes in my closets and dressers, and some other things I like because they’re useful and/or sentimental.
When, though, do I start ditching stuff? A friend of mine said now. I’m leaving in one month(ish). I guess he’s right? I don’t want to wait til the last minute and have a bunch of stuff I haven’t gotten rid of, but I also don’t want to live in this apt with nowhere to sit no dining room table. My MO is to price to sell, and hopefully things will move quickly. Last time I sold furniture, my phone was blowing up and everything I wanted to go was gone within days. I’d like to hope that will happen again, but if it doesn’t?
If I go with his idea and things move fast, I suppose I can live without these things. It will be annoying, but whatever. If I sell later and things move fast, that is of course ideal. And if I sell later and things don’t move… that right there is the sadness.
Please explain to me how to adult.
What do you think? Thanks.
