I'm in the process of sorting my possessions into "keep," "trash," and "sell/donate" piles. So far it's been slow going. I'm moving on July 5, but I have the old apartment until July 31, so I can afford to leave some of my things there while I wait for them to sell on eBay or Craigslist, or for HousingWorks or The Salvation Army to pick them up. But I need to remember that after I've moved to Brooklyn, I won't want to shlep to the Upper East Side to take care of business. When I moved to the UES from the Village I still had my old apartment for three weeks, and I had to stop there occasionally to pick things up or meet with a broker in my unsuccessful attempt to find a new tenant for my lease. Those evenings were not fun, especially during a heat wave. So the more things I can get rid of in the next two weeks, the less I will have to stop by after July 5.
