I will be moving on Saturday. I get the keys Friday, have lots of friends over Saturday to help, Sunday clean my old place, monday turn in old key.
I have a lot of stuff. And, I think just like throwing away food, i dislike throwing away my stuff. I think we all think our stuff is worth money. So, why give away something when I might be able to sell it?
Same thing with food. What if I want it later? Sure, it didnt sit well, but I might want it tomorrow :-) So, it sits there, taking up space, until it goes bad. Bleh.
Also with this move comes a big jump in rent. (Im moving out of a two bedroom into a one bedroom to get away from my roommate.) So, what I am giving up in money, I am gaining in the use of the living room (including writing in the living room, and doing yoga or exercise videos). It means budgeting a lot more closely in my food expenditures, which is both good and bad. No more trips to the grocery store for entertainment.
