|She also has her spice set from when she got married. over 30 years ago. And she still cooks with the spices.|
I am saddened to admit that DD already has way more than 10 toys, and she's only 9 weeks old! She had maybe 5 or 6 stuffed toys that used to belong to me and DH. Then Mum made her a teddy... fine... and we got a few lovely stuffed toys... fine, a nice organic cotton monkey and so on... and then people from church started giving us LURID day-glo teddy bears and cheap rattles and so on. We've donated a few already and I want to get rid of more, but Mum's paranoid that if I do, someone who gave them to us will see them in the op shop. (To put things in perspective, Mum's constantly bewailing how much clutter is in her house, yet she visited me the other day and had to collect a bag of my chickens' shed feathers for which she had no immediate use, and a bag of autumn leaves 'just because'! Love her dearly, but huh?).
I don't get the 'culling books' thing. Books to me simply aren't clutter--it seems perilously close to sacrilege to say you have no room for them, or heaven forbid, to get rid of them!
Hmm, I feel inspired. I think I'm gonna go throw some items in a donation bag!
