Bring things you love and make you feel at home

It's a judgment call--are they things you love and will miss? If yes, bring them. Depending on where you are going to live--wet side or higher elevation means moisture, mold and shorter life for some things, or drier side/lower elevation means mostly mold free, whereas on the water means a combo of this plus salt issues. But, still if you love something, even wood furniture, and would miss the item or feel like it's not your home without it/them, then by all means bring it/them.
I brought my favorite furniture pieces, some books (a few more than I should have maybe) and various things I knew would make me feel at home. Haven't lost anything to mold etc. yet. I did simplify life and didn't bring unnecessary items. Still I live above Kailua Village at around 800 feet, so have little salt or mold issues. I only regret (minor) bringing the number of paperback books I did--my eyesight and Kindle have made those books less important.
I had a 20 foot container and also shipped one car. I am very glad I did it the way I did, paperback books aside.
