six words: slowly sorting...

 
I only wish my attic was this neat...
and full of antiques!
 
 
...because boxes lead down memory lane

I have the same problem...wait a minute- I've got a solution: when you come for dinner, I have a little job for you :)

Elaine - I used to be indecisive said...

Same here. I enjoy the trips down memory lane, but then get annoyed that I haven't sorted out as much as I hoped!

laughing housewife -- lol, only if we have dessert at my place :D

Elaine -- that's me too, but I've learned to just expect it and try and enjoy :)

Since I'm moving soon, I went through everything I owned, getting rid of unnecessary things. It's amazing how much junk we hang on to because "we might need it someday"! Hah. But then in some ways... no, that stuffed parrot that I loved when I was 3 and the hairpins my grandmother used when she was my age are not necessary, but they do hold sentimental value. I'm not really the type to get attached to "stuff" but I did bring a few special items with me. I'm moving to a place I've never even been before and I need something to cheer up the currently empty house we'll be living in! :)

Yes they do ... and when I have a project to "clean and organize" -- I can way-sided by looking into them and the journey begins!! :)

Hilary said...

so true - I am sure you will have so many good memories...

Lauren said...

I am so bad about this -- it's one of the reasons when I clean I have to have a friend or my mom supervise me. Otherwise I end up spending all day not getting anything done. :D

I used to sort through packed away memories once a year, not to discard but just to relive. It's been awhile and might be fun to do again. Maybe thought I'm putting it off, because we hope in the next couple of years to move into our own house. That will no doubt inspire a lot of sorting through memories. :-)
