new submission for the FAM perhaps

For you non FS readers, that’s the Foreign Affairs Manual, aka, the bible of the Foreign Service. Yes, I have a new rule that should be included, a rule that many would actually find useful.

If you haven’t used it, read it, listened to it, watched it, or worn it in the past five years, you don’t need it and shouldn’t be hauling it all over the world. Especially true if you’ve told your spouse that she can’t have certain things because your HHE (household effects) is already over the weight limit.

This brought to you by the pre-move boxing up that it currently taking place in my house.


  1. Congratulations on the move!

    You are amazing for being able to pack up everything by Friday!

    Good luck!

  2. Well I sure hope you part with things that you really don't need and not because you at the limit. Then again maybe you have to huh? Best of luck and I think this should be added to the manual, save tons of headaches for others in your situation. Thinking of u C. xoxo
