Before we finalized our plans to downsize from a house to an apartment we wanted to make sure we could fit into an apartment. That meant downsizing our possessions to a more reasonable level. We called this our Big Purge. We attempted to get rid of everything we hadn’t used within the last six months. It was A LOT OF STUFF.
We documented our Big Purge so that you could use it as a resource and as inspiration as you tackle your own purge or declutter project.
After purging each area of the house we had to find a way to dispose of all the stuff. We sold some stuff on ebay and craigslist, but the bulk of the items were sold during our Big Purge Garage Sale and the remainder after we sold the house was sold at a our big Moving Sale.
