As I prepare to move, I've been getting rid of many things. Just today I took seven bags of things to Goodwill. I have furniture I'd like to give to Goodwill but they don't pick things up, they only take dropoffs. I am hoping St. Vincent de Paul will send a truck for the stuff I want to give away and if not then I know someone who may be willing to come and get it. I've held onto stuff that should've been cleaned out years ago. I should have moved from here years ago but my job was so precarious that I didn't want to move and be put into a deep hole. However, due to my own improved money mangement and a very good credit rating, I am going to do what someone I worked with many years ago told me when she got her own place. She said, "I decided to take a chance. " It's also a better idea than renting again in an area with very high rents.
I am scared, I am anxious, I am discombobulated, but I have to both look and move forward. Wish me luck.
