Oh crap

Why is it we accumulate so much crap? And why is it we treat it like it is gold? I've started spring cleaning (hush, I know its July) and I've noticed how much crap we have accumulated and how much we don't want to let it go. This is the converstation: me- "honey, why do we have this thingamajig?" pud-"we might need it someday" me-"but we haven't used it in 4 years" pud-"but we might". I just feel like throwing everything away in my house and completely starting over. Only then I would accumulate more crap and have to do the same thing all over again.

I know, I'm kinda random, but I am my mother's daughter.

I have boxes in my garage that have been there since we moved into this house over 6 years ago. Don't talk to me about crap - I seem to be attracting clutter like dog hair to black slacks lately!

Oh how I identify.
My husband saves everything, then when he goes out of town I "clean house", literally. If I die before he does our children are gonna have on BIG mess on their hands.

I know. We often find it hard to part with things we haven't even seen in a couple of years. For some reason, as soon as they surface again, we decide we've missed them and can't live without them.

I put in notice that we will be vacating our storage unit by the end of the month... shudder.
