For example...black particle board TV stand in the living room. $20 old particle board bookshelves. 17 comforters. (Apparently we are blanket people.)
Really, it'd be easier to say what I would TAKE with me moving. Living room couches are nice. Nice bookcase in the living room. Can lose the TV stand - I would rather mount a TV in the living room. The other issue with our living room TV is Thomas' Xbox stuff - it's really cluttery. I think Thomas will probably have his own room with the Xbox in a new place...so it won't always be in the living room. But if we needed the Xbox in the living room again depending on our space, I might have to get serious about cordless options. All Thomas' gear is cordless, but it takes some maintenance to KEEP it cordless (recharging batteries, for example.)
There needs to be a space for Sammy's and Puddin's toys that isn't directly in the living room. All the living room REALLY needs (assuming we will never have a separate LR and den), is a TV, a couple of couches/chairs, maybe a bookcase, some end tables, maybe a coffee table (we've lived this long without one...but I really like this ottoman/coffee table), and some lamps depending on the lighting situation.
If we moved with a bed (which we want to replace ASAP), living room furniture, and kitchen necessities (and by that, I mean AMBER necessities, which includes a little more kitchen stuff than most people), we could live comfortably while saving up for our dream furnishings. Room by room, I want a comfortable, clutter free space. I want to feel like I'm coming into a nice hotel room, with ONLY the things I need most.
Anyway, this is a rambling mess for only me, but I've been pinteresting to help myself remember what I want out of a home, and hopefully that will help me leave junk behind in Texas. Anyone else using Pinterest out there?
I'm sitting in a nice hotel right now. Do I miss ANY of the stuff in my office? Do I miss my dressers and closets full of crappy clothes? Do I miss my collection of 500 plastic cups from various non-reputable establishments, like Rudy's and Texas Rangers? NO. I am happy to have clothes to wear tomorrow, a plastic cup to drink water from, and a laptop to ramble on. THAT'S IT.
I guess stay tuned for news about what I manage to get rid of. If I get rid of a bookcase, can I get rid of the bookcase's contents? etc etc etc
