What to keep, what to discard

I DOWNSIZED from a bungalow to a condo almost three months ago. It was stressful but the move thankfully went well and we have settled in quite nicely in the new place. Since then, we have been working on the next task of clearing the house of all the things accumulated over several decades.

I knew this would be immensely hard but it has been made tougher because I have to clear my parents’ stuff too, which they brought with them when they moved in with me. Dad has passed on and Mum has dementia so it’s up to us children to decide what to keep and what to dispose of.
