Quote of the Day: I guarantee that if you throw out all your "clutter" in your twenties, you'll spend your middle-age years trying to buy it all back in second-hand stores. Lisa Hunter on Apartment Therapy
This really is the paradox of getting old...you still love to visit antique stores but when you do, all the stuff you see is junk wonderful items you got rid of 30 years ago! I think that Lisa is probably right. Getting rid of the cluttering does carry certain risks. My thinking has alway been that someone else can store the junk wonderful items I give away until I am ready to buy it back. It is a win win.
