Okay I am on a roll, yep otherwise known as
"DO YOU REALLY NEED THAT?"
I have halved or more the kids toys, our clothing etc.
Its awesome it truly is, but I know there's still more in this house!

I've even started tossing storage stuff if its not holding anything.
But can you go too low? Or is it okay to replace a thing or two here and there?

I want to toss my dressers as they are just about empty, is that nuts?
looking for under the bed dress boxes....that would really get more space in my closet!

8 might be enough

If I had my way, about 3/4 of the stuff in my house would be gone!

I think that it would be okay to have to replace a couple of things if you need to. Just don't get rid of anything that you know is a need.

You can come over to my house and keep on that roll if you want to!

I SOOOO need to go thru the toys again! Good Job, Mama I'm going slowly, but I do think it's okay to replace things with stuff that works out better. I got rid of so many clothes for my girls, there is empty space in the dresser, too! Right now I'm trying to find a good toy storage solution, given the limited space I have in their room. I'm going to wait and buy EXACTLY what I want, whenever I figure out what that is Right now I have no idea? It needs to have some space for a few bins of toys, 4 drawers for the girls clothes, and needs to look good in their room.

My 6 yo told me "Enough getting rid of stuff!!" and won't let me touch anything in her top dresser drawer. It's full of miscellaneous treasures like parts of broken toys, rocks, fabulous jewelry and pictures her friends have given her. Okay, boundary respected.

Here's mine!
Ikea:
http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/store...61*15639*15651

the boxes fit a milkcrate perfectly, I got the zip top ones they sell and have it all stacked, it fits books, larger toys, bigger ones go on top.
Its also sturdy and deep so it will fit books x2 deep. I love love love them. clothing fits perfectly on them as well, it gives a funky store type look but its all accessible and confined.
