I'm very excited! I have made the decision to move to a 55+ community about 20 miles from where I currently live. I absolutely LOVE the floor plan. It's very open and much larger than my current 1368 sq. ft. of space. The big drawback though is that I will suddenly, once again, have a mortgage for about the next 5 years. And that will cut into my travel budget. But lets face it, I've been traveling like a fool these past several years, so even if I cut back I will probably still be taking more trips than most folks do in a year, so it's not as bleak as I first thought it would be.
Now the task of getting my house ready to show. I need to maximize the look of the space so purging is in order. Last night I took about 1/3 of my clothes and packed them in extra suitcases to go in the attic. But what to do with big pieces like my treadmill and the credenza. I want those for the new house but do I really want to rent a storage unit to store them? And who do I get to move these heavy pieces from here to the unit, if I get one. A Moving Co. will look at that task as nothing but busy work and probably won't be interested in the job. I'll be busy for sure getting all this stuff taken care of. Won't have time to eat!
