4. Remembering the leather mini skirt is fun, but a photo will suffice.

And, once you de-clutter, you will have more time to look through old photos.

Thanks for the good wishes, Contrary1/ Happy whatever to you too and good luck with the ferals.

On the bright side, you have accomplished a lot of the move already, so you should be very proud. And, as you said, you are getting there.

And just think how easy with will be once you have "de-accessioned."

Nothing like starting a new year with a lot less clutter, as you are about to do.

I have never witnessed it, but, supposedly, on New Year's Eve in Italy "out with old" is done very literally and people throw old furniture and other things out of windows. And my former partner used to purge his files and desk drawer every New Year's Eve before leaving the office. Good tradition!

Also, think of it this way. Your accumulated stuff is, in a way, a tribute to your longevity and that of your marriage, and to your life in general.

People who are homeless or who live in tiny apartments don't get to accumulate a lot of stuff. Or a lot of nice memories about leather mini-skirts. And people who get divorced and need to sell their homes in order to sort out the financial part of their divorces generally have to both de-clutter and down-size at that time.

So, kudos to you, your marriage and to all you have accomplished toward this move.
