I sympathize, it's hard getting rid of so many years of stuff (25 yrs of it myself) but from my experience very freeing. I got down to one book-pack of photos/papers, a few books
and a couple of nick-knacks.
My ex girlfreind jammed so much stuff on board I was down to one small cabinet for my clothes and we were shifting boxes of stuff out of the bunk everynight to sleep... in the end as much as she liked the "idea" of sailing away she could not let go of her shore-life with attendant amenities.
As it was the whole proccess of moving aboard was enough for her to see that cruising was not for her... too much sacrifice.
she is a good sailor but not a cruiser... it all worked out.
