  • Is he still in the house? If not, how long has he been gone?

  • Irrational?? Sounds normal to me! But before you do, ask yourself if you'll want it later. I'm sure a lot of stuff can go. I've been there 3 times. It seems I get rid of lots in the beginning and more as time goes on and I'm DONE with it emotionally.

  • I would tell him that he needs to come and get anything he would like to keep in a certain time frame. Otherwise it will be donated. Thats just me!

  • eh, i would SELL anything i could and donate the rest to goodwill. and just a heads up, i would empty the bank account and put the cash somewhere he couldnt find it before i got rid of his stuff because he could really screw you by hitting the bank and taking all the money when he finds out. you can legally empty the account and not give him any (and he can do the same) so beat him to it before you piss him off!

  • thanks everyone and i closed our joint account today and got my own account and put the money in there so at least i was on top of that

  • (¯`*•.¸,¸.•*´¯)id call him tell him he needs to come get his stuff or if he is not there at a certain time for the stuff then you will have it outside on the curb

  • i would box up all his stuff boxes, put it on the curb and write FREE on the boxes. LOL. but thats just me I like to make a statement, its probably not a good idea though
