Hi - I am new - but something I did recently was get rid of all the dvd cases and put the dvds into nice dvd holders. We had bags of plastic. It felt so good to get that space back. I love this thread.
I would've sold them at the time if I'd known better, but I thought it was okay to donate everything we didn't use or need. I've always been a sahm and haven't worked since I was 18 and met my husband, so at the time I didn't really "get" the money thing. He was -pissed- when he found out a year ago that I donated tons of dvds. Like, he wanted to practically get a divorce. I had donated his old clothes too, etc. I never did any of it maliciously or anything of course, I was just kind of dumb about it all, and was selfishly doing what I thought was best, without ever realizing I was being so selfish and thoughtless. I still feel terrible about it, after I found out how it made my husband feel. I've always just wanted to make our home nice and clean and clear, since the nesting business in my brain kicked in a couple months before we had our dd. I'd never thought about the "stuff" in our home ever, before then. I have learned many things and matured a lot in the last year though, and everything's cool now. I am aware of everything I think and do now! And I don't ever -touch- any of dh's things!
