I put sliders under everything & they are easy to move. If I decide to move I'll hire a mover.

Sliders under everything and one time I made a resolution to never buy any furniture that wasn't on wheels, lol. I have an antique drop leaf table that's on wheels and a kitchen island on wheels. I wish I had more.

I've downsized and gotten rid of a whole lot of furniture including a hulking coffee table. Now I use a tiny cedar chest instead. But I worry about moving my bed or the heavy leather couch.

As for furniture to buy if your old stuff wears out, I remember a great aunt who came to visit one time and she loved my Boston rocker. I still have it and I guess it would be comfy if you needed support for your back instead of this squishy non-supportive furniture that so many of us have. I love furniture until I think about moving.

People should quit thinking their kids will want their stuff. They have their own stuff. They like their stuff. Do you think they will get rid of it to make room for yours?

Years ago a priest told me that all the things people think are so important will just be thrown away when you die. I see that all the time. Mom dies, kids have a yard sale, then a dumpster.

I eliminated the coffee table during my last move. Magazines(neatly arranged) and remote do not need a permanent home.

My furniture is heavy. I never give it a thought since I won't be the one moving it.
