I definitely reccomend the list! As we hope to be FT for at least 8-10 years we don't want the headaches of storing a bunch of stuff so I made a spreadsheet to list everything we own I sent it to my kids & said you don't have to wait til we die to fight over everything--put your initial on anything you want or it may go to EBay, Good Will or garage sale!!!
After that I got a spiral notebook & dubbed it my 'fulltiming' book. I have a page for each room or category (linens, garden/yard, games, cameras/spotting scopes, etc). I list the things that must go in the 5er, with specifics: 4-6 plates...4-6 bowls...etc i've used pencil & have made changes. Probably will make MANY more in the next year til we get rid of stix & brix.
Does the 'Limey' refer to English? My grandparents came from Englnad & Scotland.
