Like when a parent or aunt/uncle pass and you are the one to sort through the "stuff" they leave behind.
I don't want my daughter to have to go through that.

We’ve seen both sides, of that scenario.
One Aunt completely cleaned out, sold/gave away practically all of her belongings and then decided to move herself in to an assisted living type situation.
When she passed, nothing (of material value) was left to haggle or get upset/emotional over. Very thoughtful.
A friend, whose mom recently passed, is now having to go through a home - luckily with her siblings - containing 60+ years of acquired ‘stuff’. Not fun. They stress just with the thought...not to mention their sadness, on top of that.
I had to do it with my m-i-l and I am bound and determined to NOT leave my kids the same mess.
It's hard though.
