Now I have moved about twelve times over the course of my life and sometimes I have actually moved and left almost all my furniture behind in my sold or rented establishment. Either because I didn’t need it anymore or I had included it in the price of the house that was sold.
On the few occasions I had done this I would have to go out and find discount furniture for my new establishment, and I usually started off with new sofas every time I bought a new house. This would be followed up with new kitchen table, and sometimes appliances if the ones I had were too old and crusty.
One of the houses we bought in AZ came with appliances that were so old we just left them behind when we purchased a new house. Sometimes the right decision is to buy furniture instead of moving your old stuff, but try to re-use what you can.
