I'm just posting to share, and hopefully get some encouragment! I just decluttered my big rolltop desk, and emptied it into our much-smaller kitchen desk. I just posted the rolltop on Craigslist! Yikes! Knowing how little money we have to spend on furniture, it makes me nervous to get rid of anything "nice" - even though it's not really my style and invites clutter with its million cubbies & drawers.

How much is your rent or mortgage payment? How many square feet in your house or apartment? You're paying $x per square foot per month, and that roll top desk takes up some of the square footage. Therefore, you're probably paying more to keep it than you would if you eventually, someday, had to buy another one.
