How To Decide What To Do With Your Stuff When You Go Abroad?



Question from Instagram: "Should you really only take 2 suitcases abroad?"


Look, you can do whatever you want! You hate to hear it, but it truly depends!

  • It depends on how you envision your life abroad.

  • It depends on if you have the budget and patience to ship all of your worldly possessions around the world.

  • It depends on if your target country will accept your items into the country.

  • It depends on if your stuff will be able to be maintained in your target country’s climate (think new bugs, possible heat, humidity, or cold).

  • It also depends on if your stuff will even fit inside your new home! Let alone the door frame or window, but actually in your bedroom or living room. Will your stuff fit? Different cultures and countries have different size expectations for homes.


We go into this in detail in the Moving Abroad with Intention course, but it comes down to this: what does a life well-lived abroad look like to you?

  • What are the reasons for you moving abroad?

  • Is hauling all of your belongings to another country in alignment with that vision?

No one can answer that question for you, it’s truly up to you!
