Are You Sentimental?

Ask a Question

I am just having a clear out to make more room, I not that sentimental so I have no problems with throwing out birthday card (milestone) but my husband has kept his 40, 50, 60 - Ok they are in a box & not taking up much space.

But I said to him you never look at them so what's the point of keeping them.

Do you keep things ?

I can be sentimental and I do tend to hang on to things. I try not to hoard, and have a little clear out quite regularly, but there are lots of little bits and pieces that I keep for sentimental reasons.

Unfortunately yes, my worst thing to throw out is an item that has eyes. My husband says pull the eyes off then we can throw it away!

beccatavender I have a book of them

Both of my nans have/had alzheimers so I always think (not in a negative way) but I may appreciate the little memory prompts later on in life !

beccatavender I just think of it this way... worrying won't stop it from happening if its going to happen. But worrying can impact my time now. So I'd rather live each day focusing on the here and now and the stuff I do have control over πŸ˜ƒ

I am sentimental over certain things. I still have a copy of our wedding invites, order of service, place settings and I still have the ones from my MILs wedding. I am sentimental with things for my son. I have his first booties, his first shoes, the first cardigan and blanket his great granny knitted for him, the first babygrow his dad bought him, the outfit we brought him home from the hospital in when he was born and when he had his operation, his name bands etc from the hospital, his 1st birthday cards, his first Scotland and Northern Ireland football strips and other things that are meaningful to us.

I have clear outs regularly and get rid of things but there are some things that need to be kept.

My mum and dad have been married for 47 years and my mum still has their order if service and invitations.

You can get some great memory boxes ideal to keep these precious momentous.

I used to be more sentimental when we had a larger house I kept things, we had been in the same house for over 20 years. But when we downsized I had a big cleared out wedding invites, wedding cards etc. They didn't make them into my packing boxes πŸ™‚

beccatavender I've got a memory box for all the wedding invites etc but I need to get one for our sons things. I'm tempted to get a personalised one with his name on it as I will no doubt be adding to it over the years.

Some of my wedding invites etc went into the bin when packing for moving house recently as I realised I had 6 copies of everything and I only need one! So some of it didn't make it into our packing boxes either.

Oh that must be touching, when we were clearing out my Mum's flat she had kept Mothers day, my sister asked me if I wanted mine I said No, as it was too upsetting.
