Post may contain affiliate links to materials I recommend. Read my full disclosure statement.

When I first started decluttering in the spring, I decided something that had to go was the piles of unopened scrapbooking products. Before I developed neck and shoulder issues and then had Caroline I was a fairly steady scrapbooker. But once my life took a significant change, the scrapbooking fell to the wayside. I had a lot of Creative Memories products that were still in the original packaging. I knew that there was no way I was going to use them any time soon, if ever.

And so I sold them all on eBay.

I still do have some scrapbooking materials – pretty papers, stickers, etc. I’m letting Caroline use them from time to time, rationing them out a bit so she doesn’t go through them in a week. LOL!

But all of the pages and pocket pages and stuff like that is gone. I’ve released it to other people who will use it and enjoy it. It no longer takes up mental space or physical space in my home. If I ever do decide to get back into scrapbooking in the future, I can go shopping and buy what I need.

Do you have unused hobby materials that need to go? Are you hanging on to products that you simply don’t use and probably never will? Who could you give them to? Or could you sell them on eBay and use the money for something that really would be helpful today?

  • I’ve been finishing up my stack of sewing projects, because I have a large commitment of time and energy coming up, and truthfully I just about enough clothes now. I am down to the last two projects, one small and one large, which I can probably finish this weekend.

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
