How to downsize and dispose of my house. All this STUFF!
by Chris Miller
Have been in my house since 1968 and will be moving in with my daughter, from a 4 bedroom house to one room.
I have several collections, that were important to me, but now just stuff! I really don't know where to start, feel like I am drowning.
Excited about this new phase in my life, but just overcome with the job ahead.
First, are you sure this living together works? Why not try it for a few months, go home, sell and pack AFTER you've tried it out?
You might prefer downsizing to a smaller home or condo, but close to your daughter, but on your own? I know nothing of your relationships, but after you sell it all, and if you discovered that it's not what you imagined, it's harder to start over. Just my two cents- I could be completelly off here.
You could sell collections on Ebay.com
(but you'd have to learn, post item by item, sell, ship).
You could also try Craigslist.com
as buyers might be local then.
FInally, if you want to move and don't want the hassle of selling it all. You can post each item on Free Cycle.com
, to recycle to someone who can use it and people will pick it up. You cannot charge using this site, simply post, pick someone from those who apply and make arrangements to pick up.
