So do you want the good news, or the bad news? Let’s get the worst over with: we still haven’t technically sealed the deal with our house sale. The good news? Our worst-case scenario of repairs and closing costs will at the very least get us to break even. It’s not our ideal situation, but it’s not horrible either. At least we know we’re moving! And really soon too. As in, next Thursday soon. Yikes!
Now for the hard part: Packing. We’ve all been there. I’m the sort that likes to purge before moving, to get rid of all the unnecessary items to make it as simple as possible. So what’s not making the cut? I think I’ll surprise you!
Yup. We sold our Farmhouse Dining table, Rustic Bench and the 4 chairs. I really love this set, but I’m gunning to make something totally different for the new house. Think chunky, reclaimed wood. Maybe metal folding chairs with upholstered seats. It will knock your socks off.
The man-cave corner desk is out. I know, you’re probably crying on the inside, just like I am. I’m crossing my fingers that it sells, but if it doesn’t it will either stay here or find a new home with a friend. It’s just not sneaking it’s way into the moving truck!
The funky end table that currently lives in Charlie’s room is also getting the boot. It was a great concept, but not my best execution. Plus it’s incredibly tippy and Charlie has knocked it over a couple of times already.
Our free standing closet organizer? Gone. I’d like to do some built ins for our new closet.
My painted washer and dryer. I think I’m going to shed a few tears over these. They’re my babies. My mini-blogging-claim-to-fame. But it is time for them to move on to cheer a new owner. We’re looking at high-efficiency front-loaders for the new place. So off they go…
What about you? Do you like to streamline your possessions when you move? Or would you rather just box it all up and deal with it later?
