From 62 to 40

This week we spent time purging again.  We went through all our stuff with a new perspective of being overseas and were able to get rid of a lot more stuff.  We whittled it down from about 62 boxes I think to 40 plus a few random items and the clothes and few item we're taking to our training.  It was a lot of work but definitely worth it.  It should make storing everything much easier.  All our material possessions in 40 boxes (and 5 of those are Christmas decorations!).  Crazy!

Books, keepsakes, china, the black table, the rug, an amp for my guitar that I can't play and camping stuff

Books, camping stuff and dishes

Everything else...including the stuff we hope to take back overseas (the stack on the far right)...we'll see about that!

In the spirit of full disclosure, we do have one more box that I forgot to take a picture of.  It's a big bin with clothes in it for when we're in the States.  :-)
