    Default Are you Sentimental?

    I don't like clutter, so I only keep the important stuff that means something to me. I have two boxes under the bed of sentimental stuff and that's it. It's mainly cards, letters, photos, teeth, school reports, stuff like that. I save all hand written letters, not that I ever get many, but it's usually the older generation that send them. If somebody is going to go to the effort to write a letter, I couldn't throw it away.

    Pots and pans though, I didn't think I was sentimental about stuff like that but I am. There's not a day goes by where I don't miss something and feel a bit teary missing stuff. Today it was a pink glass bowl. How stupid is that? You go through life collecting things that become part of your day to day life and hold memories, but you don't see them as sentimental until you don't have them anymore. I'm not sure whether it sounds silly because it's maybe something that people on here haven't experienced. When you move from one country to another you lose a feeling of belonging, so having familiar things around you is really important.

    What kind of stuff is sentimental to you? Do you think you could you just pick up and leave and not miss a thing?

    I'm quite sentimental, probably why I hoard so much tat.

    There are lots of things I hold on to, if it was ever precious to me it always will be on a certain level.

    I used to keep everything but for the past ten years ish not so much.

    I've chucked stuff away that I wished I hadn't though, and some of that might seem stupid to other people. I had a really nice rug that was my grandmas, I got rid of it when I got a new one quite a few years ago but I wish i'd have kept it, it was a very nice rug and well made, and it was once grandmas.

    I've still got my very first teddy though, and my dad's very first teddy. And a Basil Brush. I've got a wooden building block type thing from when I was very small and a few games from when I was a teen so I do hold on to some stuff, but not everything like I used to.

    I suppose i'm most sentimental about photographs, I don't see them as things, I see them as memories and they're probably not of any value to anyone but me.

    I have stuff that I couldn't throw out but I am getting rid of as much of the stuff I have collected over the years as I can. A lot of it is reference info or books that you can get on the internet nowadays so it is not as necessary to keep them in paper format. Others I may miss but not enough to have it continue to take up room in the house. I've sold a lot of it on eBay and made some money, which is good, and there are piles of books that we will give to a local charity when we get round to it.

    I am a bit sentimental

    I've thrown plenty of stuff away in my last move, but there are still things like gig tickets, old love letters and cards that I keep
