There are the memories we keep inside our hearts and then there is the stuff given to us from those we want to remember. My grandmother passed away this month. As I think about all the memories I have of her, I am reminded that some things we hold onto can clutter our life. Actual memories live in our minds and hearts but we keep many tangible items that represent memories too. This is where the clutter happens!
Sentimental – holds real memories of a person or event
Historical – holds generational and family lineage information
Just Because – those things that are neither sentimental or historical
Of the items you are keeping “for memory sake”, decide which category they fall in and then re-evaluate.
