Decluttering your Papercrafting Supplies - Day Three

Yesterday I had you spend your 15 minutes on going through your stamps and getting rid of the ones that you could let go of, I bet even that was hard for most of you.  Today we will get a little more difficult but if you really start feeling stressed go watch an episode of Hoarders and see if that helps! 

Step 2 is to get rid of the stamps that don't fit you anymore.  For instance, I am 53 years old and even though I have the occasional niece or nephew come along, I don't really have a ton of use for baby themed stamp sets.  ONE, which offers congratulations to a new arrival is about all I need.  Perhaps you no longer have a need for teenager themed stamp sets or you still have that greek alphabet stamp set that you thought you'd use to make a card for your grown son when he was in college but he's been out about 10 years now.  You don't need it anymore.  You also don't need the picnic set if you don't take picnics, the prom set if it's been way too long since you went to prom, the Valentine's set if you really don't give your husband a Valentine's card (I don't), the 4th of July stamps when you never send a Fourth of July card or even do a layout with it. 

Look at the stamps that don't FIT you anymore and set them in a box.  Try to set a goal of getting rid of 10% of your stamps today but do it fast, you only have 15 minutes.  I am absolutely serious about the 15 minutes!  Set a timer and stop when it goes off.  Seal up the box and write Goodwill on the top.  You can do it!
