I just finished lugging downstairs the results of my recent
purge, 3 of the large rubbermaid totes.
I didn't realize I had that much. Feels lighter in my office already!

I am ready to pass my stash with a group that crops monthly. I usually only get there 1 every other month or two though. This month we are bringing out stash to pass it on to whomever whats it at a low cost per bag or ziplock or whatever! Looking forward to this 3 day weekend to get that done!

I need to get that half-bag of paper out of my craft room ASAP! That's all I could bring myself to "purge," but now it has been sitting in a bag for months.

I am such a scrapbooking hoarder that when I read you have 3 totes of stuff, I felt my anxiety/excitement creep up just imagining all those supplies! As though I was getting them or something!

I don't know how you gals do it. I have been going through my stuff looking for things to sell at an LSS garage sale and only came up with one box. Even some of the supplies that have been sitting around for years I still like (like my HS ghost shapes and letters)!

For me, the things I have been clearing out are either from my first ever purchases (so not my style anymore) or were gifts I never much liked, but kept around just in case. If I continue to pass over things, after a few years out it goes....

I purge as I go now-a-days. However, I do have some serious hoarding tendancies when it comes to certain paper companies and their matching embellishments.

I need to purge again. I am constantly going through and getting rid of stuff I don't think I will use. I have a small space.

Good for you! I love how it feels after a purge - anywhere in the house, not just my scraproom!

We're planning to move this spring/summer, so I need to start another whole-house purge before then.

Went through my paper last night and came up with a 1" stack to get rid of. I don't buy much paper; I buy ink, dies, stamps, embossing powder, and punches.

I just got rid of 18 inches of paper and 2 boxes of embellishments. It feels good to get rid of stuff I overbought. I'm talking stuff that I *loved* so much I had to have 4 sheets of it.

It was just time. And I'm making a little money selling it so I can buy more! However, I have been back in the crafting mood so what I have left IS getting used now so I feel better about that. I'm also going to be more selective when I shop this year.

You large scale clean outs have my admiration.

I thought I had done a big purge last spring, but when a flood hit our basement and I temporarily moved upstairs to a spare bedroom, I realized I had barely scratched the surface. I have a small box slowly filling once again, but if I were to be realistic, I'd need at least one large Rubbermaid container!

My LSS, home of GREAT garage sales, closed around Dec. 1. I was so excited to hear that it was re-opening under new ownership in Jan. Stopped there today-they have little inventory so I can't get in trouble buying more (CHA orders will complete their stock) but I was beyond excited to hear that the garage sale will be back next month! I'm not sure it's good for their business plan, but I can't wait to unload more stuff!

I have been going through my scrap areas and purging too . I have one storage bin ready to go. Still have more to go through though. Doesn't it feel good to let go of things that we are not going to use?

I just purged 2 boxes of stuff yesterday. I met a girl at M's that was just getting into making cards. She told me her $$$ was tight, so I was glad to help her out. It felt really good to know she will be able to put the stuff to use.

I did a reasonable purge and my daughter's art teacher was so excited to have new supplies that it inspired me to do some more. I have another big box to go to her next week.
