  • I have an 18 gallon plastic tote that I keep sentimental stuff in. Other than that, I don't keep anything just to keep it.

  • I definitely am not. My dad is a hoarder and I hear it is hereditary and I get kinda anal about throwing things away. If we haven't used it in a while, or plan on using it in the very near future its gone. SO has stuff like too many guitars, amps, bass guitars etc. But since thats all it is I really don't say anything about it.

  • my husband keeps stuff, and it drives me crazy!!
    i think pictures are fine to keep, but not of ex's!
    anyhow, i love to get rid of stuff. i love to de clutter!
    if it hasn't been used in one year, i try my hardest to throw it out!!!

  • I keep things for sentimental reasons, mostly things that my kids have made or worn, given me or achieved. Anything else, I have no problem getting rid of.
