This is bad...
I used to really enjoy getting rid of stuff, but lately...

I want to take a load of stuff to a swap meet (well, since I am the UK, a 'carboot') sale, but I am struggling to persuade myself that afterwards I MUST throw it/give it the unsold stuff away.

It will make me happier to have less stuff, right? Can anyone PLEASE CONVINCE ME of that so I can do the right thing?

Everytime I donate or freecycle something I feel so happy that someone else is enjoying & getting use out of the item. People are so grateful to get something they can really use! That's what really motivates me, I think. And then afterwards my house is neater & more organized & there's less junk sitting around. Just do it. Get everything out of the house & into the car and once it's out of the house you probably won't mind just getting rid of it completely
