We've been slowly purging ourselves these past few years. What's interesting is, this year things are a bit different. I used to be able to text a friend and say "Hey, would you happen to want my XYZ? It's in great shape and I know you like stuff like that." The answers used to always be "Sure! I'd love to take that off your hands." Now though? It's always "I appreciate the offer, but I'm trying to declutter myself." As annoying as it is to lose avenues of giving good stuff to people who I know would appreciate them, I can't be mad. I think we all have too much stuff and that we're all slowly drowning in it, so to see other people get in the declutter game makes me feel hopeful.
