It isn't until one moves, I believe, that one discovers just how much "stuff" one has aquired. I recently moved back to my college town from Arkansas, and was shocked at how much I had accumulated in one year. I threw away half of what I owned, and yet filled a 12' by 6' trailer with my stuff...and STILL needed more room.
Granted, had I packed better, perhaps I would have felt less burdened.
And when I arrived, it took me three weeks to get my internet set up, and I still can't get the cable to work.
I suck at moving.
