Why did you pick up this book? Are you or someone you know thinking of moving? Do you want to separate the junk from the treasure, but are not sure where to start? The main aim of clearing the excess is to find out which possessions are important to you. It makes no difference whether you are actually leaving your residence or not, the point is you have thought about such an event and have prepared for it. By having considered the scenario in advance, you reduce the stress. This book will encourage you to explore those dark cupboards and unearth long forgotten riches! There's no doubt that the task can be huge. Your thoughts will ponder why you hoarded stuff in the first place. Did the job of clearing out get too big and now you don't know where to start? Do you like to have "things" around you? No time to spend sorting what is what? Are you holding onto this "undefined wealth" because it was given to you by someone in the family and you do not want to offend them? Look around you now. Are there newspapers, mail or clothing just hanging around? Is it because you have nowhere to put them or were you just waiting for the right time to get back to them?
Think of those special items you have collected through the years. Can you name twelve of them without looking? Are they nestling in cupboards and suitcases? A house is not a home without these more personal items that define you and your family. They decorate the space with memories. BUT: - If you had the opportunity to replace them, would you look for something similar or a whole new style?
Australian born, I have moved many times. Relocations have been made as a single person, a couple and as a family. Time frames for travel have varied from ten days for interstate transfer to six weeks for international adventure! I enjoy being with my family, making a home, meeting new friends and travelling.
