Oh I have way too many magazines....I know I will never read them again but still pike them up! X
Lordy, just LOOK at Charles and Di.......... I seem to be hoarding images/recipes/websites etc online now. Methinks there is no hope...................... I seem to have swapped real clutter for virtual clutter.
I was clearing out the desk drawers the other day and found a pile of photos of houses we went to look at when we were househunting 30 odd years ago (and I could remember the location of each and every one of them) - why I kept them heaven knows - and to cap it all I put them back in the drawer I had just finished clearing out - I think I have a problem!
The only things that I have which might form a loose collection is pieces of pressed glass in various shapes and forms. I find it endlessly fascinating and would be unhappy to have to get rid of any of it.Good luck in your endeavour!
Given how fascinating we all find ephemera . especially vintage copies of magzines and newspapers , it's obviously your duty to keep these for future generations . Your greatgrandchildren can sell them on eBay .
No thank you, I daren't help you, as things could only worsen for me. (Not that I'd do anything with those newspapers but use them to light the stove...) But I bet you have treasures that I couldn't part with either!
Hello lovey oblong xxx
Perhaps you could donate them to the Museum for Failed Royal Marriages - if such a thing existed. I find it hard to get rid of books.
Anything child-connected, ie programmes of concerts they were in 20 years ago, postcards they sent, birthday cards they drew... Must must must be firmer. I also have a collection of ancient newspapers. Would you like to augment yours? No?
I had those newspapers,kept for posterity but think I chucked them some years back. But 30 years of Royal Opera House programes ...?
