Put your thinking caps on — I need some opinions.
From time to time I become obsessed with clutter. Now would be one of those times. I’m my own worst enemy really, since I allow these things to pile up in the first place, until it drives me crazy, but that’s beside the point. I feel like our closets are packed to the brim with things we don’t really need. I think anyone who lives in a 750ish square foot apartment with a husband and two cats could understand where I’m coming from. Less is definitely more.
Let’s consider this an informal poll. My question for you is, where do you the draw the purging line? There’s sentimental value, and then there’s letting crap pile up for no good reason. What’s worth keeping?
I have three shoe boxes full of relationship memorabilia with Husband — cards, ticket stubs, notes, little gifts. I can’t bare to part with any of it, but man it takes up a lot of space. What should I keep? What needs to go?
What about cards from other people? Do you keep them? How long?
Once you’ve graduated university, do you draw the line at high school memorabilia? Do you think it’s crazy for a 25-year-old to still have things packed away from her high school days?
We are thankfully moving into a bigger place in six weeks, but it seems ridiculous to move things that we really don’t need. Now is the time for some major decision making. Help!
