Sorry if this is in the wrong place - couldn't decide where to put it and paniced lol (And it related to our migrating issue, as if we don't sell it all, we can't go!).
We have come to the realisation that we may not be able to go when we want due to having to shift the whole house contents really, and not having done this before, wondered if anyone had any bright ideas? (When I went to NZ I just left everything with friends/sold stuff to housemates or left it with parents, but they themselves have since emigrated, and no longer live in a house share, so can't do that this time).
We have split everything into three lots - 1. de clutter stuff; 2. everyday but not essential; 3. essential stuff.
We are car booting, starting this weekend the de clutter stuff, as well as some ebay on free listing weekends - books, clothes and shoes and so on.
The everyday but not essential (spare room bedroom furniture etc) I guess we will gum tree and ebay (free listings again lol) as we can take a bit of time with this (although not too much!).
The essential stuff we are going to see if the landlord wants to keep any of it (the place was a complete shell when we moved in) although unlikely as he is as tight as, and as its things like our bed etc I'm floundering a bit as to how to sell these - gum tree and ebay with a pick up date of just before we leave?
Hubby has mentioned house clearance places, for ease of use - whilst I guess we wouldn't get the best price for things, I can see that we will struggle to get rid of lots of our stuff, and therefore just getting rid of it for anything would be good (or we will have to take things to the tip) - but do these actually happen, or are they just mythical?
If anyone sold basically their entire house off (we are shipping a few bits and pieces, but we are going travelling for however many months, so will have to pay for storage which makes it far less cost effective for us to ship our Ikea stuff lol), how did you do it? Any clues, ideas or pointers?
Cheers if you have a 2 penceworth on this one, as the sooner we can sell things, the sooner we can go (and I need to go NOW for my mental health lol).
