The One with the Scrapbook Purge


Wednesday, August 29, 2012

I have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much scrap crap :)
I've been hoarding it since I was 16, so 11 years now (wait, lemme double check my math, 27 - 16 = 11. Had to think about it - my brain is getting rusty!). I get most of it for free from being on various design teams, publication product compensation, guest spots, etc. With more new stuff coming in, it's time to let the old go. And this time I'm getting rid of anything I haven't used that I've held onto for over two years. Out with the old, and in with the new! Plus, we're moving in 9 months and I'd like to pack the least amount of stuff as possible. Goodness knows where we're moving to though, we haven't heard from the Army about anything. Maybe they've forgotten about us, ha!
Now the question is, what to do with all this STUFF!?
Photobucket
I have about 100 packs of retired Thickers (most are missing some letters),
Photobucket
dozens of pieces of patterned paper, even some entire collections!,
Photobucket
about 20 packs of unused stamps (stamping just isn't my forte!),
Photobucket
a couple of Mister Huey's spray mists that I had doubles of, countless packs of stickers, chipboard, die cuts, punches, flowers, embellishments, and more and more and more! It's all a mess right now as I'm purging so sorry there aren't better pictures.

What would you do? 
At this point I'm about to just haul it down to the trash rather than deal with it cuz time is a precious commodity these days! But I'll get some input first before I do something that drastic :)
Give it away to friends?
Give it away on my blog?
Sell it piece by piece on ebay, my blog, or Craigslist (cuz who couldn't use a bit of extra moola?)?
Donate it to a good cause?
