This weekend we followed the advice of the Apartment Therapy book and did a huge purge/clean out of all of our stuff before moving out. We went through every item in the house and asked ourselves if we needed it/loved it/ever used it. For Jacob, this was most challenging with his books, for me, my vintage clothing. But in the end we gave up more than 8 bags of clothes, 4 boxes of books, and so many nick nacks, you couldn't count! We made over $200 in the sale, and donated everything that was left over to goodwill.
