So all the baby gear... I can't decide if we should keep it? We do have the storage space (attic) but we could lose our house within the next year or two, so I really want to declutter. Plus I hate to hang on to things indefinitely, and I don't want to hoard stuff we aren't using. At the same time, I'll probably cry if we do get rid of everything, because it almost means I'm giving up on my dream of having a big family!! And I really wanted kids close in age.
By gear I'm mostly talking about cloth diapers, baby clothes, swing, bassinet, carrier, favorite toys, etc. The car seat will probably expire soon so that might be one to get rid of while it still has some lifetime left. We never really used some of the bigger items (playpen, stroller) so I guess we can at least get rid of those. The thing is, we do not (and likely will not, for the foreseeable future) have the money to replace anything if I did manage to get pregnant... especially not pricier items like our diaper stash. We do not (and will not) use birth control so we could conceivably get pregnant any time and I don't want to be totally unprepared! We also no longer have family to pitch in & help with baby supplies the next time around (a lot of these items we couldn't have afforded without family help!)
