WHY do you save kids' things?
As our children grow up (late teenagers, both), I find myself wondering WHY we save things. I know HOW to save--there's enough online about that--but I can no longer figure out WHY I'm saving things such as: picture books, art projects, little baby outfits, etc. Do I think my children will want these items? Or would they do better to be passed on while they're still usable and useful? The same goes for things like my wedding dress, or high school yearbooks, or a wedding gift that isn't our style. As time goes on, our garage and cabinets fill with things that we love or used to love--but we don't want our children to have to clean out when they are adults, nor be burdened with should they choose to become parents.
Why do you save sentimental things? If you don't, how do you let go?
