Mostly clearing out with my 10 step process:
Step 1: Remove all yarn from the studio (except sock yarn of course).
Step 2: Quick and dirty pass through for easy decisions to discard.
Step 3: Dust and clean. Find lost items.
Step 4: Coned yarn I’m keeping is entered in Ravelry stash page with bare bones information including weight.
Step 5: Inventory of sock yarn.
Step 6: Evaluate the non-coned yarn.
Step 7: Photography the keepers and update Ravelry.
Step 8: Give away or photograph the yarns to be sold and update Ravelry including prices.
Step 9: Post a Destash notice on Ravelry, post on Facebook marketplace, and the NextDoor app. 
Step 10: Repeat with knitting needles, tools, accessories.
