Getting rid of your stuff to fit into a student apt.
« on: April 17, 2006, 04:00:32 PM »
What a pain in the neck!  >:( I have 9 more years of accumulated furniture, artwork, clothing, hobby stuff, games and electronics to try to fit into what I am certain will be a much smaller living space.

I am having a garage sale in May, and selling some stuff on Ebay.  I don't mind simplifying my life, but it sure is a pain to do it!

Does anyone here want to buy 40 mystery novels?
How about a telephone bench made in the 1930s?
Do you want my boyfriend's "extra" Star Wars collectibles?

Someone, please pay me hundreds of dollars for this junk! :)

I'm so there :)

Course I mean I understand - I have my own wad of stuff to get rid of too. My wife has a TON of books to whittle down - I have a bunch of clothes and computer stuff to get rid of.

The hardest thing was to give up my big screen HDTV set. It still hurts - my neighbor bought it. I keep making excuses to visit even though it hurts me to see it on display at someone elses home. The only thing that makes me feel better is that I won't have to lug it (all 270 pounds of it) up to the third floor of some apartment complex.

Oh yeah, I have put my nice dresser with mirror on craigslist twice, and no one wants it.  (The thing is worth $50, and I asked $20) Argh!

I really just want to have an estate sale, get rid of 90%of my crap, and get just a few new things for LS.

OK, I will stop complaining now.

I am going from 1,400 sq feet (plus garage & basement) to probably 800 or so. 

You have it way worse.

We are having the same problem - except no one in our family wants to help out. Argggh.

That sucks Oingo! Maybe you could ask a friend? 

I gave my dog to my mom and dad years ago, and it was really hard (they live in a rural area where she is happier, but I really miss her)

I feel for you.

Wow.  I'm all for sacrificing for this and living meagerly for a few years, but I couldn't do that.  I'm only looking at about 2000 sf now, but even if I didn't have children, I'm not sure I'd be willing to live in anything that small ever again.  Good for you though, and good luck.
GPA - 2.095 (It was a long time ago and I wasn't trying.)
LSAT - 161

In - Suffolk, New England School of Law
Out - BC, Northeastern
Pending - Nothing pending . . . now what?

we think it might be kinda fun, like living in a dorm.  it's only for a year, so what the hell.  good luck finding someone to watch your little dog, oingo
