Oh MMM. It's been a hard week for Stuff.
We moved, only within our apartment building, but I drastically under-estimated the amount of Stuff involved.
I would say I've been permanently decluttering for at least a year, but it turns out I've only been decluttering my stuff or "joint" (practically mine) things like kitchen Stuff.
While I have been decluttering, my husband has been bringing so much into our home. Mostly freebies, due to his work (clothes, stationery, speakers, external hard drives, portable battery chargers, plus branded merch like USBs, clothes). But while those things are 'free', they still come at a cost. A cost of space.
My husband was embarrassed by the amount of his Stuff we had to move, and the cost involved in acquiring it all. That's a worthwhile lesson to learn, and he's willing to offload some to charity or eBay.
And a relative has offered to buy six pieces of furniture, we just have to store them for a week or two.
But I still feel like I'm drowning under it all.
For more than a week, I've faced a thousand questions of keep or toss, charity or sell, over and over again.
We've moved into a beautiful new space, we've bought a couple of new things for new place including a beautiful new chair (almost everything in old place was second hand), and I want to enjoy it rather than playing Tetris with Stuff to ensure it all fits in cupboards.
I have a tendency to make the perfect the enemy of the good, and I've realised I just need to move everything over then deal with it, rather than just trying to get rid of it all from old apartment.
TL;DR: I've realised I have a lot of room for improvement, and not a lot of room for stuff. But as with all things MMM, it is a process, and I'm still doing better than I was five years ago.
