    Getting rid of stuff

    Advertisements
    What are your "rules" for getting rid of stuff?
    Before marriage and kids, anything I didn't use daily got sent to goodwill every move. I am however, tired of rebuying certain things.
    Also, with the kids, I'm so sentimental about way too much with their toys. I am so sad to get rid of the first toys, or toys that the younger two *may* play with later. We also have toys that were mine and dh's as kids that I might need to bring myself to getting rid of? And what about gifts from grandparents?
    I brought myself to toss the breyer horses the kids broke (multiple times).

    What kind of guidelines do you all set when purging to move? I could probably part with our washer and dryer, but would like to move/store their swing set which we bought last year.
    My mom is a hoarder and I don't know if my view is skewed.

    I hate clutter and stuff. My rule is that if I haven’t used it in a year, it’s donated or tossed. I can’t stand keeping things for “just in case”. I have anxiety though, and too many things and clutter definitely triggers it, so my view may be skewed as well.

    This is how I feel also. If it doesn't get used or bring me joy, it goes. I need to start purging my house as well.
