If this were the case the hardest decision of the year would never have needed even the mildest of consideration.
When we moved in together a year ago we had to start from scratch. In one day, the day we moved in, we bought everything. And in one day, we have now decided to SELL everything. A MASSIVE decision, that Treeny is still not so sure about.
As the parental's have not complied with the new rule in the book of parenting we have had to resort to paying for Storage while we are away. A big expense, and a big old hassle.
When making the big decision you need to weigh up the cost of storing everything, which requires more space, so more expense, versus storing less, spending less, but having to start from scratch again when returning home. We decided to go ahead with the big sell.
