I agree with your grandmother.

I'm petite and a size 8 and since I have sons, no daughters and the other female members of my family are taller and bigger most of my stuff will probably go to a charity of some sort.

Sorted, donated, thrown out, shredded, whatever is most appropriate or easiest.



The more valuable things, antiques, jewelry, crystal, my son will keep or sell.


My dogs are provided for.

Probably the same thing that would happen to my furniture, appliances, and dishes. \_(ツ)_/

Right, but they're also not just for donating to Goodwill and a music store should be called for sale.

The point is, why do I give a crap who gets my clothes and makeup? I guess I'm supposed to have some high-end stuff to worry about or something?

I agree to a degree.

To be honest, it's something I've put some thought into because I've had to deal with my late parents' 54 years of accumulated crap over the past few years (and they were both mild hoarders. Not in the trash-to-the-ceiling way, but they kept way more than they should have).

It's put my own belongings in a new light. I don't really care what happens to my stuff when I'm gone, and it won't be my problem, but it will be my sister's (or my niece's) problem. And I love them enough to make sure it's as smooth a process as possible. That means I've done a massive amount of downsizing so they don't have to.

My sentiment exactly. But I would assume my mom will keep some as sentimental value. I already told my husband whom to give which fine jewelry and which he can keep for his future wife (I am nice like that). The non-valuable once like accessories and normal clothes, I would assume my 2 SIL who are close in age to me will go thru the closet and keep anything they find interesting. My sis and cousin might take something if my mother or SIL give to them but they won't go thru my closet (not worth their time/effort). Rest will be in garbage or if someone is kind enough to take it to donation center.

You must be mentally ill to ask a question like that.
And crooked too.

Do you know Priscilla vanilla?
She is a mentally ill criminal.
You must be related.
Got that bad seed blood in ya.
Reported. This poster won't last long, but I'm sure they'll just create another ID like they've done before.

You just beat me to it. I just logged in to do that too.

Wow. Just Wow. I've never seen anyone post anything like that here before.
