We here at Barefoot Manor are "keepers". We like to hang on to things just in case they come in handy... someday.
On the one hand, there have been plenty of times when things really DO come in handy after over a year of sitting on a shelf or in a box. On the other hand... well, the things that sit and sit and sit FAR outweigh the things that actually do get used.
So I'm purging. It's a painful process, letting go of things that have so much potential. I am realizing, though, that my dreams are so much bigger than my abilities right now. Between working two jobs and trying to keep up with the Sprouts, I just don't have the time to put into DIY and craft projects the way I would like. Getting rid of all the extra stuff makes cleaning faster, and easier. Getting rid of all the stuff makes room in my life for the things I really want to do.
It's a good thing....
