Must get rid of books
I'm moving to a 900 sq. ft apartment from a house. I have bookshelves that take up about 1 1/2 walls worth of space and they are filled with books.
These books have been collected through many years and I will try to sell certain collections or those that I know have value. It's the others that I'm having trouble with. It's hard to sell them where I live so the only choice is to give them to a place such as Good Will. But I am having trouble letting go of them although I have no choice.
How do you live with the emotions of letting go of something you've collected for many years that hold emotional value?
Also, because I am trying to save the boxes I have for the move, will heavy duty garbage bags be strong enough to hold books should I give them to Good Will?
