I will be selling filing cabinets, exercise equipment, canning jars, etc. today. This is the first step in getting rid of items that I will not have room for when I move. It is hard to part with some things that have been in the family for years. Some of the canning jars were my grandmother's. I know she would rather they were being used than collecting dust. Where I am moving, there is an exercise room so I don't need the equipment. The filing cabinets are going to the home health agency I work closely with.

    I can totally relate to this. My husband and I will be moving at the end of July and I'm having a hard time getting rid of things too.
    I feel like I should hang on to every single thing that my father ever gave to me. I'm trying really hard to remind myself that my memories are in my heart and mind, not in the object itself.
    I hope you had good luck selling things and making space for yourself!

    Moving is hard enough without having to give up things that have sentimental or emotional value. Just think though, it will be exciting to decorate and fix up a new place.

    Moving in itself can be emotional without having to give up your treasures. Good Luck and know that the memories if not the items will always be with you!!!! emoticon

    I sold my Grandmother's canning jars when we moved to Missouri and have done more canning here than I ever did in Kansas. Oh well, that is the way it goes some times.

    Take care and do have a good day.

    I'm sure you will miss all of your stuff. And you should get a fair value.

    It is so hard to part with out "treasures". I need to empty out about half of my house. But, I look around and can not find a thing I'm willing to part with! Good luck.
