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?
