    wee mouse,

    I agree with all the others about taking it, sorting it, organizing what you keep and donating the rest!

    Pay it forward! :thumbup:

    Looking forward to seeing a pic of what you decide to make with it!

    DeeDee :D

    trust me...he enjoys seeing me take it, bc he knows I will use it...but he would toss it, if I didn't!
    He is the reason I have it. My mother didn't want to part with it, but she is legally blind.
    She talks about maybe giving me stuff he has already brought down here...shhh! I was going to make something and surprise her...would have been a big surprise :shock::!:

    I LOVE YOU ALL FOR REPLYING, BUT I THINK I MUST HAVE PUT IT ALL WRONG... ;)
    I really, really, really, want to know:
    How much space would you give up in YOUR house, to stash more stash?
    What is your limit? :mrgreen:

    K.I.S.S. - keep it simple sweety!

    Someday you won't be here and then where will it go? Sort it out one bag/box a week if you must. Get rid of what you really know you won't use. There are church organizations, women's shelters, groups in other countries that will take all your craft stuff. Don't keep it around just 'cuz it was mom's. I did that in our basement after mom died and 24 years later and a move clear across lthe country, I am still getting rid of her stuff.

    I think it is a sickness called hoarding. I don't want to be a hoarder.

    I would keep some in shed...but it would ruin out there.

    I don't want to get rid of anything. It's nice and neat and so organized.
    I'm just thinking of the future...where to put more if DB keeps finding stuff?
    I will eventually have shared and made gifts and giftings of some of it...but I won't say no.
    It's not crazy yet:wink:

    I don't want to be a hoarder...I just want choices.

    I have put boards across the top of two stacked shelf units to make another shelf...two actually..., and a third on next shelf down,...and then there's a little space in between on the floor that has a couple very small bins...:mrgreen:
