But I paid for that

With the new baby coming, the space in the house is dissappearing. I
used to have a whole room for crafts and storage but Ben now gets
that. So I'm working hard to declutter but it is so hard to do. Even
small stuff. It is like I know at some point I paid for these things
so I have trouble giving them away. Books, supplies, etc. And
tightening the budget has brought back all my worst clutter demons. I
think I might need that at some point- even though I haven't needed it
in several months or years past. Why is it so easy to accumulate
stuff and so hard to get rid of it?

Goal tonight: box up at books for goodwill.

Before you send those books away, can I have a look? I have nothing to read.

I remember the feeling. Our house felt so big when we moved in...just the 2 of us. About 7 years and 2 kids later, it had really shrunk! Good luck!

City of Riverside is having a yard sale on Friday and Saturday. You can use space on our front yard if you want to try and sell any of it.

Aghhh...I hate that feeling. I am the worst at getting rid of my crafting things - I keep everything and I do mean everything. I have hoards and hoards of stuff - tiny little scraps, single beads, bits of ribbon and all sorts of things that I just may need one day. I don't let anyone in my basement for fear that they will see my rats nest - it is shamefull.

It's genetics. We are all pack rats. I am working on that issue also.
