Tossed out a pile of items from my scrapbooking drawers. Have another pile ready to give away.
Two things I am having trouble figuring out how to declutter:
1. Old photo negatives. In twenty years of taking pictures I have never gone back to have pictures made from old negatives (aside from the month I first had them developed, when I ordered any copies I wanted). I have tons of old negatives. Should I toss them? Will I regret doing so?
2. Leftover portrait pictures. You know - you go to Olan Mills or Portrait People and have your child's picture made. For each pose you get an 8x10 and a zillion little pictures. They also sometimes throw in an 11x14. I've put the 8x10s into the scrapbook - the grandparents have been given all the portraits they need. Now I still have a bunch of wallet, 5x7, 11x14 pictures, some going back seven years. Should I keep some of them? How many? How can I bear to throw away professional pictures of my children! Help me!
Items returned to store: 6
Items tossed: 9
Items freecycled: 11
Items purchased: 1 (a crockpot- I really needed it)
Total decluttered: 38 + 1 reclutter= 37
Pieces left: 463
