To purge or not to purge...
okay what are your thoughts on certain "things" that
I want to purge.
I want to get rid of a bunch of books, but I might need them.. do I keep them or just buy them again when and if I need them in a bunch of years!
Scrap book pages... I have a ton of scrap book pages, I want to scan them in and have them actually printed out into nice books. I don't need EVERY page that I scrap booked because well seriously do we need to remember the first time Kate had an Oreo? SERIOUSLY. So after I scan them in... i throw them away? That hurts my heart a little BUT i will have the pictures still!
board games... do you keep all your board games, I mean we have a lot that we just do not play, should I just get rid of them? they take up a LOT of space and I could use that space for other stuff!
I am purging clothes, night clothes etc and I want to go down to 10 outfits each for the kids, now truthfully I don't know that we have many more than 10 complete outfits, I don't think Kaitlin actually has 10! But we have extra shirts, sweaters, multiple jackets etc. Should I get rid of them and JUST keep 10 complete outfits? one light jacket, one heavy coat, 2 or 3 night clothes????
Do you have a hard time giving away something that was a gift? I didn't think I did but I have a few things that I am vacillating on...
Then there is the "I might possible need this in the future" category. I mean we have a bunch of THINGS that we really don't ever use BUT we might! I mean I have a drawer full of STUFF, I think I open it every few months, MAYBE once a month and scrounge for something but most of it stays where it is... waiting, just waiting to be used!
In the meantime.. the things I am not questioning are flying like hotcakes!
Whoo hoo... freedom from stuff!
