What Don't You Move?

When we begin packing for a move, we tend to address our most important items first. By the time we work through the rest, there invariably remain the misfits we can't see the point in moving...

We're trying to think of the items that we tend to whittle down to. It's tough to put a finger on it, it's always such a motley grouping. It might include excess unused office supplies, unwanted gifts kept out of sight and out of mind 'til this day of reckoning, odd unused dishware, wrapping paper, or partly used but still very usable pantry items or cleaning supplies.

We generally end up giving some of the items away to friends and donating what we can. The rest, after much deliberation, often ends up being thrown away. We feel wasteful but don't want to move unwanted items to a new home.

Do you end up with misfit items you just don't have the heart to move? What do you do with them? Please tell in the comments below.
