I feel your pain. My effort to downsize (sorting, donating, and discarding inherited items) turned into a process that lasted almost 2 years. My house took longer to sell than expected, and lots of things went into storage for staging, painting, and patching. Unfortunately, the final items slated to be donated in March had to be dumped, because all local charities shut down due to coronavirus concerns.
Due to injury, packing was done badly to say the least. On moving day (4 weeks ago), I discovered that the storage unit supposed to be part of the deal was non-existent. As a result, there’s a lot more stuff than I’d planned to have in every room. So, unpacking is going to take a while. I try to focus on functional items (over decorative ones) and avoiding re-injuring myself.
One day, I hope to look back on the moving day pictures I took of “peak chaos” and laugh. In the meantime, I have the real estate listing “before” images of empty rooms to use as a goal (and requests to “see” my new place). Thank goodness for fake videoconferencing backgrounds!
