Downsizing and Moving Update #6: Progress in first half of June

We got a bit done this past two weeks to prepare the house for sale and I feel like we are on schedule.

More things left our house and won't need to be moved. An old recliner and two bookshelves went to new homes. A stand mixer and other things from the kitchen went to a favorite charity thrift store. Four cans of old paint were addressed with kitty litter to harden the paint and put in the trash.
