This sounds so familiar. I had binders on the top of the Kitchen Cabinet with about 1000 DVDs in them. Just so in case any one wanted to see their favorite movie I would have it.
Now, the DVD collection has grown, but I convert them to MP4 videos and store them on my 3T USB hard drive. My former 200 pound DVD collection now has twice the movies and weighs about a pound.
The cast Iron griddle is gone, too.
Tools were scaled WAY back. I still carry enough for my "on the road" projects (always a list) and emergency repairs (roof on down).
Cleaning supplies limited now to routing maintenance.
Computers still play a large role in our lives, but they are also downsized. The 2 desktops are gone and replaced with a nice widescreen laptop, an iPad, and a MS Surface. The printer is still here, but much smaller and I also have a wireless router for internet connection sharing at locations that charge for internet access. (the laptop has 2 network cards - one for the inbound wireless net (external USB network card and mast mounted high DB omni-directional antenna and the internal one for the router).
The big weight ticket items now are still beverages (mine and the DW); two cases of homemade wine (one white - one red); a case of Limoncello; as well as a case of beer for guests who prefer beer; 1/2 gallon Gentleman Jack; and 1/2 gallon Jose Quervo Gold Margarita. The ice shaving machine does not weigh all that much but is a bit bulky (found a spot behind the sub-woofer).
DW is a soda drinker and she feels that since I seem to be running a bar, she can take a few fridge cases of soda along (to be fair, her brand is often hard to find).
As you can see, regular weight checks are a must for me. We run near max on the camper and at max on the truck's payload.
