Today's progress is barely noticeable, but every little bit counts. I have 2 cases (like a tackle box) of old makeup. Nothing wrong with it. Colors I ended up not liking, products I didn't care for, etc. I threw out probably 80% of it.
Less than 4 months until the move, and there's lots to be done, but I love that every day I know I am closer--either a little or a bit more--to being where I want to be.
I continue to struggle with small appliances. Currently, we live in Germany so we bought (used) 220v appliances for the stuff we use regularly (microwave, fans, crock pot, water kettle). All our 110v stuff is in a pile in the basement. It will go into storage (government paid) while we are in the States for 8 months, and once we get to Japan, it will get used. But for now, I have all these appliances. In this case, I don't think it makes sense to sell and re-buy, but it is a damn lot of stuff to store. Similarly, we have all the 110v extension cords, adaptors, power strips, etc. Just sitting in a pile, taking up space. It would be silly to purge them, as they have a concrete use in a set amount of time, but it's a pain to work around them.
In about 3.5 months, I can start selling the 220v stuff. I'm willing to take a hit on price if I can find someone willing to take all or most of it, rather than having to deal with a couple dozen $10 sales, people flaking, etc. I'll give away stuff like the lightbulbs (new and used), but some of the rest of it has a decent amount of value.
And I'm off to check out A Slob Comes Clean!
