Ok what r my options what do I do, whos stuff is it now. Please be clear as to my legal option good and bad

Dear JACUSTOMER - If your divorce was final then having sex is not going to undo the divorce and whatever you did before that is a moot point at this stage. As far as her personal property, you have no duty to store it forever and my suggestion is to send her another email and tell her that if she doesn't pick up her property within the next 30 days you will dispose of it as you see fit. Unless there is something in the divorce decree that requires you to keep her property you simply have no duty to do so. Once a divorce is final and the property has been divided then neither party has any duty to the other to keep property or to do anything not included in the language of the divorce decree.

Thank u for ur answer... so after 30 days I would not legality get in trouble or becouse of her leaving she then did not abandon her stuff .???? I have been move than fair I feel but do not desire any legal fight if I move it out or that the salvation army picked it up.
I don't believe you are liable now but I always recommend that you give anyone 30 days notice to get their things so as a matter of courtesy I would give her 30 days.
