Still Purging & Packing

July 24th, 2021 at 06:16 pm

It's amazing what you can accumulate in a home after 15 years. I moved into this home with only the bedroom set I had in my parents' home. I have accumulated so much stuff, some that I didn't buy myself & never used. Such as a silver gravy boat. I don't even make gravy & if I did, I wouldn't serve it in silver! So that has been my life the past 3 weeks. If anything will cure me of my love of shopping it's weeks of having to give things away. 🛍 

I hope to get repairs done soon so I can list my condo soon after I move out. It's so hard to find reliable people that follow up. 

My rent will be more than double my mortgage, which I can afford & am okay with. Since I applied 3 weeks ago they have already raised the rent by a few hundred dollars. (On another note I hope I don't regret passing up on the 3rd floor unit with the vaulted ceilings & skylight.)

My 401k rollover has been deposited in my TSP. It was only a little over $1k, but I'm glad to have the money consolidated in my TSP. I was being charged a $1.25 fee for what I'm not sure. It's not much, but I try to avoid any fees.

Stocks were up & down this week, but ended up at a high. My accounts are at an all-time high. 

Investments $1.193 million

Net Worth $1.335 million

    I can relate to your packing and purging dilemma. I too have lived in my house 15 (and a half) years, the longest I've lived anywhere as an adult (and in a year and a half, it will be longest I've lived anywhere, period). I moved at a very busy time in my career and it's been years since I decluttered. I'm hoping to get some done now so that when I do move (estimated in about ten more years), it won't be so overwhelming. Moving every few years, as I did for most of my adult life, definitely helps keep possessions under control!

    Good luck with getting your condo repaired and sold and enjoy the new digs!

    One of the things I dread if we ever move is the purging and packing! My heart goes out to you.

    Glad you are happy with the new place. I had a friend who sold her house and paid rent and was happy to do so since she no longer had the headaches that went with being a homeowner. Sounds like you are feeling the same and that's wonderful if you've found some place you like. Hope you can get the condo sold soon.
