Selling memories, making room for dreams...

Monday, July 1, 2013

Oh, tout le monde, my time in the US is drawing to a close!  I can almost count the number of days I have left here on my fingers!  In preparation for my big trans-Atlantic move, I've been doing quite a bit of downsizing.  I'll put together a post on how to prep for a huge move like this, but let me just say that I've discovered that I have SO many THINGS that I really just don't need.  

I've had 2 yard sales, been busy on Craig's List and ebay and etsy and Poshmark and every time I go to pack a box, I come up with another bag of memories and such that I feel that I can move forward without.  If anyone needs an iTunes gift card, some handmade jewelry, or handmade scarves/hats/headbands, let me know!  I will bundle and take discounts like crazy!  Since I am a bit lazy where etsy is concerned, my inventory is all up on Facebook!  If you want ANYTHING alone or in combination with something else, leave a comment and we'll coordinate!  Everything must go! 

When I made my one-year blogiversary video, I promised not to rant too much about how ridiculous it is that I am moving to a new continent, so I 95% promise you that this is all you'll hear (unless you want a "How To Pack To Move To Another Continent" post!).

  2. Haha I love the photo of you with my cash in your pearls. I might be interested in a "How to Pack and Move to Another Continent" post - sounds like an entertaining read at the least! :)

  7. I don't know why but cleaning out your closet and getting rid of old stuff can be so much fun, and it looks like you had a blast!

    1. Seriously! I LOVE cleaning and getting rid of things almost as much as I like acquiring them! It's always sad when you HAVE to downsize, but if you're doing it just to do it, it can definitely feel fabulous!

  8. I would be very interested in a "How to pack and move to another continent" post since I do plan to move to France in the next couple of years. I think that would be a very interesting read.

  22. WOW!! Your style is so funky fresh, love it! Hope everything goes well with the move. And I'm totally with you on having to sell memories but every once in a while it's good to purge... and then replace it with better things/memories.

    Best of Luck!

    1. It is a good purge! It's great to feel light and not like I'm super tied down, but at the same time, it takes forever and can be a bit sad!

    1. Thank you, Sandra! They are probably the coolest shoes I own at the moment. I'm sad that they are packed away in a box to be shipped overseas and I won't be able to wear them until they reach me far far away!
