My in-laws are moving to a smaller house soon. They feel overwhelmed

by all the things they have accumulated over many years. To avoid the same situation, my husband and I have started getting rid of things we no longer need and only keeping things that give us joy. We already discarded old computers, books and DVDs. My youngest daughter wants to keep many children's books, which we are saving in the plastic bins. I guess children’s books gave my daughter happiness. 📚😃
I haven’t looked at the middle and high school books yet. 😅
We’re keeping some DVDs. 🥰

    Good! My wife and I never had the same opinion about getting rid of things in the house. When I try to throw away, she try to keep me away from doing so.

    @Marine Peter Rabbit 😍😍 Eventually, my husband and I would like to move to a smaller house or an apartment. We also feel overwhelmed with accumulated things. We made a commitment to get rid of things every week. We have been doing it for a month now. 👍✨

    @Beth えらい😊👍We call it 断捨離(だんしゃり). I think if we live with the things which we just need, we can live more peacefully😊私もがんばります~。

    I almost cried when I got rid of my DVD player and discs. Lol Sometimes you’ve just got to let things go to make space for new memories. Happy that you kept some of her childhood books for her. 🥰 I remember you gave some to a friend to make new memories for her new family. ✨ I still don’t know what to do with my game consoles. Ha-ha

    Wow, that's good for you👍 I agree "keep things that give you joy"! I try to get rid of things several times a year. I ask myself if I need it or not "now", it is suitable for me or not "now" , and if I am comfortable with it "now"😊

    @.. I’m keeping my DVD player as I have some favorite DVDs I could not discard. 🤗 We threw out PlayStation quite some time ago when we replaced it with Wii. Now hubby mentioned about buying a new game console. 😏

    @mihae When my daughters were younger they spent many hours reading children’s books. Once they turned teens they did less reading. 😅
