There are the pack rats, people who won’t part with a thing, and others who have no problems sorting out their belongings once in a while. When an expatriate family needs to go through this process, emotions run high as many items carry special memories. However, don’t let the family member that complains the loudest end up keeping useless items.
Instead, we suggest a number of disqualification tests to help you reach your goal in this “game”, which is to dispose of as many items as possible.
We’ll help you set the rules as an idependent, but experienced, referee.
Usually there are three places in the house where you need to “play this game”: the garage and/or the garden shed , the attic and the children’s bedrooms. (Forget about your partner’s home office!)
Rooms need to be divided into three corners: the pack, the store and the dispose corners.
