I've been debating over the last couple months what to do with some of my larger tools and other hobby stuff. While I'm living at the parents I only have a single closet and a desk, although I will be getting a couple bookshelves soon. Either way space is at a premium and while the X is fine storing anything I can't find room for I have decided to sell most of it.
I had a lot of plans for some of these things so this was not something I just made a snap decision on. I checked with the family members for anything they might want but on friday it's all going on ebay. While it was a hard decision I feel very liberated as well. While I focus on rebuilding I have found a few things I really enjoy doing and would rather persue those interests.
Another factor in this is I have decided that I will be moving into an apt and not a rent house once I've rebuilt financially so the tool would just sit in storage for years. I'm happy tonight, I feel like I've settled on a framework to rebuild. And the cash I will get will give me a nice bit of padding in the bank.
Direction is nice

I have to agree that downsizing during/after a divorce is the way to go.
Start anew... Everything fresh, different, no triggers.
That's what I will likely do after the settlement...

Good for you! I LOVE the feeling that selling on ebay gives me. I like to pile everything I'm selling in a corner and watch it dwindle as my paypal account grows, lol.
I'm happy for you that you are making decisions and moving forward.

I am struggling with what to do with some pretty substantial home office furniture my brother has been graciously storing for me. They are renovating soon and I'll have to move it and the place I'm in just doesn't have the room so I'm planning on hiring movers to take it into storage.
I'd like to keep it as it's really my own furniture left from our D that isn't tainted, yet I'm almost having a hard time justifying keeping it at all.
Hmmm...you've given me things to ponder.
