We're moving in a couple of years (we have an obligation here until September 2014), so my goal is to be totally mobile by then. We plan to take very little with us, so my mantra when I purge is "Am I willing to move this across the country?" If the answer is no, then I don't see the point n keeping it now, either
Ah yes, the need to move is the overriding impetus behind me being so "extreme" lol. I anticipate that I will have to move in the near future for my job. This expectation has magically erased all my desires for fancy, beautiful antique furniture, wallpaper, beautiful luxurious curtains, cute little knick knacks (?) etc.
