    I don't know - - but WAY longer than getting it all done today. I would be unable to do it in one day.

    [ I saw your question on the home page and sat there thinking of an answer. Then I thought I would answer.
    And then I saw your picture!!! Another great picture!! I'm falling in - - I just want to sit there and look at it and at everything in it! Like no leaves on the tree! And how distinguished and handsome that man is! Etc. But I have to go to work now. Thank you for your kindness, help and patience with me today. :) ]

      Thank you. I originally wanted to use that picture when I posted the question about a week ago asking if I could prove I don’t have COVID19 would people let me move in with them, lol.
      When I go to select a picture to accompany my posts, I often punch in a keyword and save a whole bunch of them to choose from for the post. The ones I do not use are still saved up, I did have almost 1,800 total until last week when I purged over 1,000 of them.  I liked this picture so much that I didn’t want to purge it, so today I came up with an excuse to use it.

    It'd take over a month to pack up this place and all the outbuildings.  I'll leave the outhouse, though, as I don't need to take all my (ahem) with me.

    If I had not started packing before today, moving day, today would not be moving day.  Wouldn't happen.

      That’s what I’m asking, not as if you just started packing today, but taking it as today is the big day and you are finished packing.

    I am donating a lot of stuff, in fact, most of it.  I already have the important things in my room.  IDK about the Kitchen stuff I'll have to think bout that. There is only a couple of pieces of furniture I want the rest will be donated. I need my books though they have become valuable.  IDK maybe a week to get it all cleared out.

    Aagh! Weeks!

    We've been here eighteen years.

    When we arrived, we brought with us everything that we'd accumulated in the previous twenty.

    For me, that included sculptures, and materials and tools for making sculptures.

    Then, after Mum died, I inherited half of her stuff, which she'd inherited over five generations.

    So when we do move, we have a massive sort out to do.

    When I try to suggest something for sale or recycling to Ari, he says, "No! We might need that!" :/



    How long would it take you?

      If I were to move (uggghh), it would also take me weeks to prepare properly. The main task would most likely be that danged garage. Coincidentally, we have also been here about eighteen years. If I had the inclination and motivation, I’d join the throw-out-one-useless-item-every-week club, but since there are no current nor concrete plans to move, meh.

    Oops. I forgot about our junk filled garage and basement. We still have many of the items still in boxes from when we moved here 15 years ago, so those are already packed. We would have to have three weeks of garage sales to get rid of unwanted stuff.

    It would probably take me a month.  I absolutely dread the thought of packing to move.  I have so much that I don't use or need, but marshaling the energy and desire to clean out closets and drawers and either sell or give that stuff away is more than I can handle.  I do know that the moment I give something away, that's something I will need.  Never fails.
