My family likes to give stuff to GoodWill or the like. I don't think I could ever give up yarn though unless it was to someone I knew was going to use it.
Anything that was a goft even if I didn't like it. I'm always afraid that the person who gave it to me will ask to see it.
Uh gift not goft. I can't type.
I just assumed a goft was a gift relating to golf.
Old touch-tone telephones, and the stuff the sons left here when they moved away and said, "I don't need it."I am POSITIVE that they will need it some time in the future.And, pieces of nylon rope. Okay, I'm weird...
Andy: After each of her children moved out and left stuff home, Mom would wrap up choice items and give them back to us kids for Christmas and birthdays.Eventually, she cleaned our junk out of her house. :-)
Heh! Good idea, Roses! Seriously! Awww...there is a bunch of stuff they don't think they need at that age. Three of the four are gone now, and I'm hanging on to what I KNOW they will want.I left home myself once...so I know.I think I'm going to start that tradition. Your Momma was a smart lady.
Those stuffed animals I can't throw away? 21st birthday present.::nods and winks::
Really, a better question for me is, what can you throw away?And the answer is: Sometimes I throw out packaging. Occasionally a yogurt container, but those are pretty useful, actually.
I can't throw away anything. The moment I throw something away, recycle, give to charity shop, then that is the moment I actually find a use for it!!!!
I'm with 'ya on books and stuffed toys. I also have a hard time throwing out shoes. I'll be darned if I know why. I have some pairs hanging around right now that by all rights should be gone. And thread. I do embroidery. Thread can always be used. And buttons. ... You know what? I think I just discovered I might be a bit of a pack rat. :/
Books - even bad books - even books that are falling apart at the seams. I have to really work at throwing them out. If I do I always feel like a "book burner" LOL.
I can't throw away books either. I usually give them away but even that's painful.
