We bought a turn key. I gave away a ton of stuff and sold big ticket items that I knew I didn't want for sure. I know I have packed stuff that I still probably won't need down in TV but I can get rid of it there. One thing I knew for purging feels so good.

Default Bring very little

In Florida, until we get to know people and get involved at church, it’ll mostly be family who visit and sometimes friends (2-4). So I’m debating on bringing down so much kitchen stuff. What did you do? Did you wish you had? Or sorry you brought it all? We’re paying a moving company so that makes a difference too. I love what I have and hate to get rid of it. Hopefully I get a nice big pantry closet! 🤞
We moved here 6 years ago. The cost to move everything was exorbitant so I decided to give away almost all my stuff and I’m glad I did. I even sold my silver to a jeweler. I found out how little I actually used and I can buy stuff at estate sales for good prices if I need it. Just my opinion. Welcome to The Villages.

I thought I wouldn’t be using all of my serving pieces and numerous plates and glasses. I was wrong. I’m not needing a complete China set for 12 anymore but I definitely got rid of too much. Be careful. I’m replacing some of the pieces that I should’ve kept. You’ll be surprised how social we are and how much you may want to entertain regardless of the size of your house.

I just moved here and left too many household items back in Chicago. Every time I buy something I left, I am filled with regret. Bring your stuff down and sort it out down here. Resale prices are much better here than up North.

Just don't leave your precise items stored at your friends house. You might never get them back. Whatever you bring here, and is important to you keep it in site. Otherwise, you might not be the one deciding whether to throw it out.
