I love to downsize. It keeps the clutter at bay in my home. In the past, I have been known to downsize too much and find myself having cleaner’s remorse. While it is important to keep my home clean and uncluttered, it is equally important to save those items that I will need later.
Whether it’s a screwdriver or a crochet hook don’t downsize tools. There may always be a point when you may need them again. Tools, be they utility tools or crafting tools, take up space and may not be used very often. When you need them, however, the last thing you want is to be without them. Find an out of the way place for them and forget them until you need them, but don’t get rid of these items.
I have heard the old adage that states the best way to get pregnant is to get rid of all your baby stuff, but don’t. All the things you used with your first child, you will most likely use with your second and third child. Some items may appear out of date, but still work just fine for your younger children. In addition to this, baby stuff can be very expensive. You don’t want to need to buy it two or three times. Unless you are absolutely sure you aren’t having another child, I suggest keeping the baby stuff.
In fact I recommend keeping two copies of banking statements, bills, and tax returns. Keep one paper copy and one digital copy. These items are worth their weight in gold and may keep you from spending just that. They prove that you have paid your bills, taxes, and give you information for the next time you need to talk to a representative. Also keep a copy of any confirmation numbers you may be given by companies proving that you paid. You may need them later as well.
