Let's say you are packing up the entire contents of your home and putting everything in long-term storage for 6-8 months. Hypothetically.
Not counting clothes/shoes/necessary toiletries, what 5 things do you also take with you? Creature comforts? Things that you need to get thru the day/week/month? What would drive you absolutely crazy if you could not use it/see it/hear it/have access to it for 6-8 months?
Reason I ask?
I sold my house! In 4 days. Yippee!
3 weeks from today a moving van will pull up in front of my house & pack up everything I own. All my stuff is going into storage and I'll only have the basics. Have no idea where I'll be living...still working on that detail...but I'm not worried or stressed over it. It will all work out according to plan.
So tell me...what would you take with you? Why?
I did this very same thing when I sold my FL house and moved in with my buddy Howard. At that time, I took a Queen Bed, one of my 2 nightstands, a small rectangular shelf for my CD's and personal paperwork, and a plastic bin that held all my financial records. Oh, and a really cool -really huge- picture of the dunes in Sarasota, FL. When I found my house in CO, the FL movers took all my stuff out of storage, stopped by Howard's condo to load up my remaining belongings, threw my truck on as well, and I flew out to CO while they drove.
This time? I'm thinking of taking my King Size bed cause it's the best bed Ive ever slept on and I figure if I'm gonna be in transition, at least I'll sleep well. Still not 100% on that, however. We'll see.
