My boyfriend called to update me while his folks' estate sale was going on. It was heartbreaking to hear him telling people as they walked into his parents' old house, "End of the day. Everything's half price or better. Make a bundle and we'll make you a deal." And then watching his mom's dishes and things going out the door. I've decided right now that I'm not going to get old with a houseful of stuff someone else will have to deal with. I'm going to get rid of the unneeded junk, even if it's nice junk. I'm going to tell my daughter and stepkids to take what they want, sell what they can without too much trouble, and have no qualms about donating the rest or pitching it in the trash.

I am 52yo and all ready have decided to sell everything including the house. Before we get to old and just buy an RV and live in it. Make it simple for me or my DH to deal with.
