Stuff of Life

Ok, I've got a question for you. I think it's one we've ALL dealt with at some point or another.

Each year, I get stacks of them: birth announcements, photo holiday cards, wedding invitations, and on and on and on.

My question is this: what do you do with all of those things? I feel AWFUL throwing them away, especially the wedding invitations, knowing how much money was spent on them.

So what do you do with all that stuff of life? Keep it in a memory box? Toss it? Let them pile up until one day you dump them all in the trash?

I just don't know what to do!

Happy Monday!

I am the BIGGEST pack rat in the entire world so I always keep all of those things in memory boxes usually under my bed or in my closet. I can never throw anything away!

I'm bad with this too and usually save it in a photo/memory box. I feel bad throwing it away!!

If it doesn't really affect my life personally, I throw it away. Honestly, a birth announcement of a friend or family friend isn't going to mean much to me down the line...ya know?

I get rid of it all! I figure if they are close I'm going to celebrate their marriage or the new baby and if they are far away, do I really need a paper about them. I'm not a keeper type person though either so it's pretty easy to just trash them.

I usually toss them, however if the people are close to me I have some kind of memory box.

Get a bottle of white-out, blank out their names, then when the time comes, simply write in your information and send it out! Voila!
