Or sold off what was completely unnecessary and started over?
I've realized the easiest way to have old guitars and amps is to never sell them.We downsized our house a couple years ago. Sold a bunch of stuff, donated a bunch of stuff, gave away a bunch of stuff, threw out a bunch of stuff. Still have too much stuff.
Pro tip: Buying guitars and amps is much easier than selling them.
In comparative fairness to your wife, I understand you may occasionally utilize the strategy of having others keep “your” amps close at hand as well. Wink wink , nudge nudge, say no more say no moreI'm a minimalist by nature and hate clutter... wifey not so much. I have a big rubber maid bin in the garage I call purgatory. I dump all or unused items in there and if wifey doesn't notice they're missing after several weeks they go in the garbage.
Pretty close. When we moved to NB a couple of years ago, we sold off all of our furniture except our new kingsize mattress and a little oak desk I have had for years. I also so off three guitars and just kept my 5th Avenue and my Traynor TMV10. We bought mostly off Kijiji to replace everything and ended up about even when all was said and done.Or sold off what was completely unnecessary and started over?
I would do this next time we move, or have an option for the buyers of our home to include furniture. The simple fact we’ve learned is, furniture that works in one house simply may not work/fit/look right in the next house.In the past I always rented a truck to move my furniture. It's a lot easier selling off everything and replacing it when you get there if the move is a long distance one.
Many years ago my aunt and uncle built a new house literally down the street from where they were living. They put in brand new carpet throughout the house. From what I remember, the house was sold and they were out pretty quickly (maybe in a matter of a month?).I would do this next time we move, or have an option for the buyers of our home to include furniture.

2 yeas before we moved, my wife spent a tidy $10k or so decorating our living room in our last house with unique chairs with birds on them and other designer crap that looks stupid in our new open concept place. So it was a bigger waste than decorating usually is.
