I'm talking 4 couches, spare dining room tables, cupboards, rugs, oh my gosh the amount of magazines, books, dvds, cds – so much stuff. I've given my craft supplies/books a massive overhaul. Donated so many books and sorted out what I do and don’t want. I'm yet to sort out my clothes, maybe a job for this weekend (that’s going to be a big job).
We've had to have a council clean up, overfilled recycled and rubbish bins each week plus parents helping out with the overflow in their bins. It’s been a big job but oh my it’s freeing.
We feel lighter, freer, not weighted down but our possessions. I never thought of us a materialistic in anyway but by freeing ourselves of the things that were not serving us there has been a sort of change, a shift if you will in our house, in our relationship actually – not just with each other but also within ourselves. We feel happier and more content with what we do have, yes there are things I’d like but I don’t really want them as much any more.
The moving process will be a lot smoother this time round, as we now have less stuff to pack and we are armed with way more boxes then last time. It’s tiring moving every 18 months, I'm so looking forward to stopping and settling for a little bit but I will have to admit it’s always an adventure.
The countdown is on – only 2 weeks till settlement left.
