So before I do a stash thinning, I wanna share stash pics! - Page 6

Say I sold it all. How do you know what I am using the money for? I have sold stuff on the TP to buy Italian orphans Christmas presents. I have sold stuff on the TP to donate to a scholarship fund for children who lost their fathers in a helicopter crash. I sold a few things on Ebay and sent the money to causes I believe in. I have bid and donated a lot of money on charity auctions. I have a few moms out HERE not as fortunate as I and whome I have given diapers and covers to use for free and to keep.

Or maybe I sell it all and buy myself a car

Listen, some people collect china, some pottery, some buy boutique clothing for their children, some people collect shoes. I happen to collect diapers. I do have a damn fine stash and I am proud of it. But to assume that I don't share just seems kind of mean. I know it was done in a gentle way and that is cool, but it is still assuming.
and that is great. I still don't see the need to be defensive. You could have ignored the issue. You could have said I do give stuff away, but thanks for the concern. Someone has asked what we have given away. I have given quite a lot of stuff away, but I am not going to sit here and list it off because it doesn't bother me if people know about it or not.

and to the pp who said something about throwing stones- I have not seen that here at all. NO one is saying the op is a bad person if she doesn't giev stuff away or even a good person if she does giev some away. Someone expressed her desire that less fortunate might benefit from that. Big deal. No one here is going to know if she sells it all, gives some away. It isn't our business, but we can still expres our wishes.

I'm staying out of the brawl.

I just wanted to say WOW! Yummy-yum-yum! Awesome fluff Kate! That is one lucky little girl you have. I can only imagine all of the fluffy goodness at my fingertips! Able to put it all on ds at my whim! So awesome! You must work your butt off for a stash that nice. Good for you!

Gorgeous stash mama Thanks for sharing pics- I love to see the craftswomanship of wahms. I'm sure it's gonna be hard to figure out what to re-home, but the new homes are sure gonna be happy :LOL

Some of the comments on this thread reek of jealousy- not sure why some people think it's their business to mandate what others do with their "stuff". Makes them feel important, I guess

Jealousy? The ones who expressed a desire for sharing are hardly jealous. I have enough diapers thanks,a nd I have no idea one brand from another. The only selfish comments I saw were the me me me comments for when the OP sells her stuff off.

I get what you are saying, but I think it's the idea of someone telling me (or expressing wishes/concern/gentle suggestions) what to do with my stash. It's like me telling you what to eat or what to buy your kids or how to parent them or how to treat your SO.

Or I could have been PM'd and asked to donate something to a mom in need. I would have jumped on that in a second.

I agree that no one is throwing stones though

Good point. I stand corrected

Just IMAGINE for a moment. . .

There are some people who actually value things other than stuff.

Then try to imagine the experience of others who are truly less fortunate than you.

Try to expand your awareness to accommodate an understanding of how your own personal choices on everyday little things affect the bigger picture. .



Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.


- John Lennon

Thanks. When I need an object lesson, I'll be sure to PM ya. In the meantime, please don't make assumptions on what comprises my value system.

I agree. Angelica was being opened minded. I don't think the same applies for you. Your message is a good one (I happen to agree), you're delivery sucks though. Quoting John Lennon was more effective than anything else you chose to post.

Am I the only one that is laughing at this thread? How silly! Its her stuff, she does what she wants with it, who cares?!?!?!? Is it a crime to have a COLLECTION of something. Do you ppl not collect anything at all? Books, CD's, Wizard of Oz stuff, magnets, ANYTHING? Doesnt mean you have to give it away or even part of it when your done collecting. This thread is just rediculous! Even if you feel that way, its not your place to tell HER what to do with her beautiful fluff! Is it b/c a lot of its expensive fluff, so you feel the need to assume shes loaded and must share with others? Giving is a great thing and for ppl with lots of money to share is absolutely wonderful. If I had millions of dollars, I'd probably share more than I'd keep, but whos place is it to tell me i need to share? Good grief!

Nope, I'm laughing, too, but not in a funny-ha-ha way ... in a man-these-people-need-to-get-a-life way. They've totally hijacked a thread and turned it into bashing a woman who's worked hard for what she has. That sucks. :

Yep! Exactly what I meant

It's so sad that a mama can't post pictures of her stash anymore without getting a guilt trip or preached too. I've been a member of MDC for quite awhile, I loved the days when I could click on links in signatures and look at all the lovely fluff. That's usually the way I discover new WAHMs.

Kate - You have a beautiful stash, thank you for sharing!
