When I first moved to Arizona, the only possessions I came with were the ones that would fit in the backseat and trunk of my Chevy Corsica. By the time I moved into my last apartment, it took a dozen or more car loads in addition to professional movers. Where did all this stuff come from?
As I step into the next phase of my life and into a new residence, I have reversed course and got it all down to a couple car loads and the back of a pickup truck. I'm sure I'll be tossing out more soon.
