What types of things to you consider worthwhile to store? This kind of goes along with my previous post about keeping kids clothes/diapers. We have purged and purged our house down to just a small storage room in the basement...but I still feel like it's too much! We are still thinking of a possible move to the mountain cabin (less than 200 sq. ft) so I've been thinking about what is essential.
Right now, we store:
*Sporting goods such as wakeboard, skis, snowboard, etc. (this could be considered garage storage I guess)
*Christmas/holiday decorations...this is my biggest debate. I would be fine getting rid of almost everything. I'm not a big holiday decorator. I am content just buying some cheap white lights and fresh greenery every year and string popcorn and cranberries. I've already gotten rid of our fake tree and ornaments. And the bazillion snowmen my mom has given me over the years because one time I mentioned that I liked them. Oh....how I despise "collections"!!
*Photos...these will be kept. We purged about 3000 photos a few months ago. Pared it down to one small box of photos, wedding album, etc. So much is digital now...we can just store it online and print as needed.
*DD's outgrown clothes and diapers (largest amount of bins!)
Other random stuff, but those are the main boxes.
So, what does everyone else do? What do you consider "worth storing" from year to year?
