Put all your personal and emotional stuff in boxes and put them aside. Send any family
heirlooms off to other family
members. Take out ads in the papers and craigslist that say you are opening your apartment and absolutely everything is for sale
. Don't put high prices on anything and don't bargain hard. What is left after all the vultures are gone (won't be much at all), take to the dump.
Sit in your empty apartment with your personal and emotional items and look through them and reminisce. Then put them back in their boxes and take them to the dump.
Really, I can't tell you how free, light and unburdened you will feel. Your whole life just jumps forward unimpeded and with a fresh outlook. It was one of the most memorable feelings in my life, and I wish I could experience it again.
