Do you get rid of things a lot? Or do you tend to hold onto them?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I throw things away. I hate hate hate clutter. I keep a couple of the kids things but we've already gotten rid of most of their baby stuff. We threw away a lot when we moved.

I hate clutter and do pretty well at getting rid of things. We have a rule that if it hasn't been used since we moved into our house and we come across it then it goes. We do have a lot of unnecessary things around the house that I've been trying to get rid of before L starts crawling. That's my goal. We just had a yard sale and got rid of a lot of things but there's still a lot more to go. I see it but just don't have the time to pack it up to donate right now. I have a bunch of things I would like to eBay as well.

I keep every single thing of Drakes...yeah I cannot throw ANYTHING away. I have a WHOLE entire HUGE closet full of boxes all the way to the ceiling of his stuff. I need a storage unit basically. But anything else, I can throw it away. I cannot stand clutter and I cannot stand having things I do not use.

I save things like baby stuff. They go in bins and are all organized. But everything else is fair game to leave! I don't keep tons of artwork. I don't keep things I don't like or don't use frequently. We have moved way too much to keep junk. I hate clutter.

I'm a little of both. I try to donate or recycle before I throw away, and if I can't I really hesitate about getting rid of it.

It depends. We don't have a lot of space and I don't like to keep things around that aren't being used. If someone else needs it and we don't, it is gone. I hate things going to waste. But things that I know I can use for something else - fabric and material scraps, crafting stuff - I keep in a bag for future use.

I used to keep everything in case I'd use it one day.
Then we decided we were moving to Australia. Got rid of LOADS. Then decided not to go LOL.
From then on I don't like keeping things I don't use. I've keep basically everything of Eve's, but some things I have sold or given away, or a friend has borrowed it. A friend with a lil NICU baby has just borrowed our cradle swing. It's not being used here, so why keep hold of it for now?
