Ds's crib set is in dd's closet b/c I can't part w. it. My mom made it before ds was born (although he never used it b/c he was never in the crib ). I feel like I should atleast keep the quilt. How do you all part w. things you know you'll NEVER use again (we're done having kids), but feel sentimental?

If you want to keep it, and it doesn't take up too much space or get in the way, then keep it. Otherwise, keep the quilt and "bless someone else" with the rest. That's how I try to look at things when I'm decided to part with them.

I understand - baby stuff is hard to part with.

Perhaps you could use it as a wall hanging? Or is it too big and bulky?

I would have a hard time getting rid of that too. Do you have any siblings who will be having kids? You could give it to them.

Good luck
