When you move are there certain things you toss and replace for your new home?

When i moved from my apartment to my house I threw away the toilet plunger, the old broom and a bunch of old cleaning supplies. I thought some of it i just didnt want to pack up and transport...and others like the broom my family has a tradition of getting a new broom as a housewarming gift for a new home. I also tend to go through my clothing and other things and "downsize" the amount i have to pack. How about you? Do you take everything...throw some out and replace it?

I am a cheap lady who doesn't throw anything away. Things like the plunger and brush, cleaning stuff etc. I wrap in plastic bags, and stick in a box labeled "Bathroom and cleaning supplies" and pack it. I don't feel like spending the money to replace things, and I also don't want to fill up the landfill with things that need not be thrown away.

That makes sense...I'm glad i only moved out once and chose throw certain things away. (I dont count moving from one apartment to the one across the hall as a move because my address didnt change they swapped the numbers on the door)

I never move. I need to, just to get the motivation to get rid of some stuff. I think when first hubby was discharged from the Navy, we took everything. It was really nothing, but it was all we had. It would make sense to get rid of some things, though.
