    I have a hard time letting go of:

    1. Like @_sw33tp3a_11, my ancient hair dryer (25yrs). It really needs to be recycled at this point. I also have a curling iron that I've had for about 30yrs which still works perfectly fine except that I curl my hair maybe twice a year.
    2. Old clothes that don't fit in one way or another. From fat clothes to skinny clothes to clothes that otherwise fit except for my arms or shoulders to shoes that I have worn the heels beyond repair.
    3.Things that people say or did that changed the way that I see or know them. Like if they made a racist or sexist remark or belittled someone less fortunate.
    4. I also have a very hard time forgiving people for grievous acts. ex: I haven't spoken directly to my sister in two years because of something she said/did to my kids.

    My size 6 Levis. :( I'm not sure why except for maybe some of the wonderful memories I have from that time. :/

    LEVI’S ARE GOLD

    Never get rid of them

    Or if you do, give them to me and I’ll add them to my pile of clothes that are too small for me 😬

    These for me as well. Once you've been blacklisted, it's near impossible to get back on my good side.

    Can I have your led zeppelin cds? 😏

    Which copies?

    I have digital masters & remastered vinyl, plus some original vinyl (which sounds pretty amazing)

    c'mon over; we'll give them a spin.

    My alarm clock. It hasn't let me down one single time since 1983.

    Should I go ahead and tell the boss that I'll be late tommorow? 🤔

    Energy Drinks- I don't drink them like I did as a kid but there always seems to be one in my hand to start my day with.

    Old purses. I always just stuff the old one away like I’m going to use it ever again or actually clean it out. 😅
    I’m actually doing something new atm where I’ve bought the new purse but it’s the one hanging out in my closet while I stroll around with my worn out purse.

    Old letters and cards from my babies. It's nice to read them when you're dealing with a tough teen who "hates" you for doing/saying the right things.

    In a few years you'll appreciate me, I promise. Mommy hearts are always in the right place, regardless if you can't see it right now.

    I have saved all my bday, anniversary, christmas... all the cards I get from my husband or kiddo. I date them on the back and I keep them in a keepsake box. I don't know why I do this but I always have. And I have tons of these boxes all over the place with all kinds of stuff in them. I have one that has all of the linen handkerchiefs and milk glass salt cellars I inherited from my grandmother. Some have things that my daughter made for me when she was a kid like macaroni necklaces and hand print pics. There is one that has my hospital bracelets and ultrasound pics of my babies that didn't make it. I just cannot let go of this stuff.
