We are in yet another phase of “lightening our load”. Last summer we put the stuff that had made it through at least 4 rounds of downsizing. This is the best of the few belongings we still have, the things we just could not bear to get rid of. It has been sitting in a storage unit for almost a year, waiting for us to figure out what in the heck we were going to do with it. Last month we came up with a plan a, plan b, c, and d for how to get the stuff out of the storage unit in upstate New York. Cap’t K went to New York for his sisters graduation ceremony and through a crazy set of intense and unusual circumstances came back with a rental van full of our stuff.
We stuffed it all in another storage unit and now face the daunting task of downsizing once again. Along with that comes the question “how much more do we want to downsize?” “Is it worth it to keep stuff we MIGHT need someday!” At what point is the value of our sentimental possessions that we aren’t using but don’t want to get rid of not worth saving anymore?
We haven’t quite answered these questions yet. At the moment we are so busy working we don’t have much time to do much else anyway! But hey, now that we have a storage unit here we can offload some extra crap off our boat and put it there!
