Yes - ME! I am the OP, and thanks to this thread I have finally been able to break free.
To give you an idea of how "into" scrapbooking I used to be .... I used to teach classes. I had an entire room of my house devoted to scrapbooking and storing my supplies. I was majorly addicted.
But after reading this thread, I just decided to give it up. It wasn't fun for me anymore, it felt like a chore and a weight on my shoulders.
I Freecycled thousands of dollars worth of stuff. I could have Ebayed it all, but once I decided to let it all go I just wanted it gone, KWIM? I bundled it up into lots, and the people who got it were all so excited and appreciative, it made me feel great.
I think the one comment that really clicked for me was when someone here said, "Do you really want to be passing the clutter of all these albums onto your children?" No, I didn't!
My advice is, if you want to give it up, just do it! I haven't regretted it at all. I do the online photobooks now and they are wonderful!
