Yesterday we wrote about selling off big tech before a big move and we realized the same thing carried over to furniture as well. There are just some things that aren't worth lugging across the world (or even state lines).
Contemplating a move to another country will certainly put our love for materialistic things into perspective. We absolutely love each and every piece of furniture in our spot, but, there's no way we could afford to move with all of this baggage.
We plan on moving ourselves, our cats and our bikes (and maybe a few pieces of art, out of the frames) &mdash that's it. Everything else can be acquired again and if it can't &mdash tough! We made the decision to move and there is IKEA and Craigslist in Europe!
Another great aspect of selling furniture before a big move is the money. The money earned will help replace any furniture you've sold or just go right into your pocket. This idea is especially great for people traveling for an extended period time who can't afford to keep their apartments during the journey.
Have you sold furniture before a big move?
