Truthful Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm having some media difficulty so I had to change my plan for today's post. Don't you hate that?! I swear, technology can be so complicated sometimes...
Anyway, today I will admit to holding on to certain things for far too long, and yet still refusing to let go. Case in point: My high school back pack:
Pretty sweet right? That is the early 90's model LL Bean back pack. Pretty much everyone had one. I think during my sophomore year I started adding key chains and patches to it. There is no rhyme nor reason to any of them. But here are some of my favorites that are on there:

Bud and Andre were my horses the later part of my high school career. Well, Bud was my horse from middle school, and I kept him all the way until I started college when I sadly had to put him down when he coliced a month into my first semester. Worst day ever. But that's not what this post is about...
If my calculations are correct, this back pack turns 22 this year. That's kind of crazy, no? Should I still have this thing? Probably not. But I think I'm going to hang on to it for awhile longer.

Do you think this is the first step to being a hoarder? Do you have any items you've held on to for no particular reason, but don't want to let go of? Sound off in the comment section!


  1. i have lots of letters and knick knacks from my high school friends that are still with me. ack! a little hoarder-ish but I'm totally trying to improve of course :D

    Have a great day!

    1. I think things like that are important to hold on to! I still have some notes and things from friends too :)

  2. When we moved this summer, I did a lot of purging. Best. Choice. Ever.

    1. It's so necessary. I need to figure out what to do with everything though! Do I sell it here or maybe ebay? Do I just give it away? So many options! But really it needs to get out of my house NOW!
