I moved about 4.5 years ago, after 17 years in the same home...I purged a lot of stuff while packing to move. Probably half of the stuff came with me, the rest was sold, donated, or hauled to the dump.

I dont think ill live long enough to get rid of it all before my kids have to deal with it. Thats the bright side of "you cant take it with you" much of it you dont want to take.

We made 7 international moves in 12 years time. Man, you collect a lot of stuff that way.

Thats an interesting way to store your firewood. Did you employ some kind of anti bug treatment on the wall behind to discourage critters from navigating to your wall board?

No. Just the unpainted plywood. Powderpost beetles are an issue, somewhat.

Best to start a new thread in the Inglenook for new toys.
Back to the spirit of this thread, think about your kids dealing with all this crap.
My wife and I agreed that a shared resolution this year would be to get rid of one possession per day (on average).
Its going well so far. As fun as it was to acquire stuff there's a lot of satisfaction in getting rid of it too.

That's a good strategy. But my wife couldn't do it. Agree with your idea, I still like getting new stuff, but I think small now, literally .
