Stuff purging

Our downsizing operation is going pretty well so far. Pinball machine is gone, and last night we listed the living room furniture on Craigslist, with much interest already. We think family will take the spare vacuum cleaners, one of Diana's chairs and the twin mattress we don't need.

We've also unloaded a ton of clothes. I was surprised to see I still had 38" pants lying around, which have been too big for at least four years (mostly have 32" and 34" these days). I've never been a big clothes person, but I sure have let old stuff sit around.

I started to really dig into the filing cabinet too. Not that it matters how much gets moved, but I had bank statements for my business account going back to 1999 when I started it. Pretty sure I won't need those! I did find one of the deposit notifications from the first half of the wire transfer from the sale. I kept that as a reminder of my non-achievement for doing nothing but registering a domain name.

It would be nice to unload my video camera before we go, but I'm less optimistic about that working out. The important thing right now is that it feels like our stuff will fit in a smaller place.

There are poor vet students who need vacuum cleaners too!
