Remember this statement when you get to the new house, start unpacking and ask yourself "WTF was I thinking when I moved this!?"

Re: Costs of some basic odds and ends

Its a two step process. One culling is when I pack, the other is after I dump the moving truck into the garage at the destination and then have to carry stuff inside and put it back into a cabinet or drawer.

Always end up with a small heap in the garage and no motivation to do anything with it.

I screwed up on the last move by deciding that it'd be easier to install three 25' long shelves on the back wall of the garage than to take a couple of loads to the dump...

You can estimate the cost per pound to move things, and use that to triage each item into the Move it, Lose it, or Sell it categories.

Hmmm...I'm afraid that my wife would throw me on the scale and put me in the 'freecycle' pile.
