To Move, One Must Clean
I'm excited about returning to Michigan.
I dread moving, though.
|This is some of the stuff we're taking|
How much does this all weigh?
Her mother lived with us for a decade and then we combined what she had with our stuff. We did a lot of cleaning then. I seem to recall over 50 large construction garbage bags of clothes donated to Goodwill, most of it vintage.
A year later we moved to a smaller house. We eliminated a lot of clutter during that move, but we traveled only seven miles, so we crammed quite a few boxes into the garage and attic.
Now we’re moving across the country and the concept changes.
Darling donated boxes of items to Goodwill, gave a dozen boxes of milk glass to her friend (thanks, Kay! Sorry, Gerald…)
I cleaned my shelves of books years ago, so I didn’t pare much from those. Boxes and boxes of books will make the move with us.
Most of the kitchen goes with us, though Darling sent some of it off with children and friends. Bye-bye personal blender. (It hid in the back of one of the cupboards for decades, so yeah … I won’t notice.)
Finding a mover is a pain. We found one, but as everyone says, it’s a roll of the dice.
|Or is it volume?|
Let's see... divide by 12 cubed...
I hope not.
It isn't spring, but we sure are cleaning!
I'll keep you posted.
