Junk in the Trunk

Workouts for the week are taking a backseat to packing boxes. Yes we are preparing for yet another move. During this time we find ourselves re-examining the reason for holding onto a lot of our stuff/junk. We are somewhat ruthless in determining what to sell on, donate to the local Sally Ann and Women in Need (WIN), or just items to discard immediately. We have been at this for about a month now and with our move date getting closer our frantic sell/donate/packing has stepped up a few notches. I can't believe how much stuff we think we need to live. Most times there is an item that we didn't realize we still had, or it's not been used in a couple of years. Those items are first to go. Next to go are the items we need to get rid of so we are forced to actually update with newer or items that better suit our next residence. And no matter how ruthless we are, we are stumped sometimes to figure out what to do with that collection of hockey cards from grades 4-6 that we worked so hard to collect then. The only time we look at it is when we move. Now it's deemed to be worthless, and still we can't seem to bring ourselves get rid of it. Mabye the next move?

Ellie thought it would be fun to get packed up with our bedding
