I've spent the day cleaning out and putting stuff I don't use in bags to take to Goodwill or, in the case of books, Powells. There are so many things that I buy and use a short period or just a few times for something, especially kitchen type stuff. I want to get down to only what I would take and use if I travelled around the US for a year, which I would like to do.
The hard things are pictures, family pictures mainly, but others. These are not things that I want to get rid of but what will I do with them if I'm traveling full time? I do want to get scanned in a lot of old family pictures before they deteriorate or get further damaged. I also have a small box of letters I wrote my parents while I was in the states for school from 2nd grade on and they kept them so I have the letters to look back, especially when I was in early grade school, as read things I've forgotten about.
Decisions, decisions! I can store stuff in a storage unit but I don't know that I will have that much and I worry about the dampness or heat.
