I have to come clean–I am a pack rat. It hasn’t been a negative issue because I am an organized pack rat and I had enough room to store a lot of stuff.
Our home in VA had a full basement with wall to wall book shelves. Not pictured is a storage area with even more shelves, much deeper. I miss my shelves.
I purged a ton of stuff when we moved to TN because we were moving into a smaller home without a basement. All the “stuff” we don’t use often was stored in the barn. I need to purge more; thankfully, I don’t have to do it all at once. My plan is to spend one day a week purging.
Why is it so hard to give away baby clothes? Because I love to look at them and remember those wonderful, precious baby days. Then it came to me–why not remember with photos instead of boxes of clutter?
So here are some of the baby clothes I gave away. Works for me.
Books…hmmm not as easy. Taking photos won’t work. Any suggestions on how to purge a few hundred books (that I am sure I may need someday)?
Remember decluttering is like eating an elephant, one bite at a time. Stay tuned (or subscribe) for my next bite.
