I threw out that giant stuffed teddy from my childhood, as well as other stuffed animals. They had just been sitting in the attic and in boxes in the basement. My kids would never play with them. And why keep them?
I just decided that it needs to be done, so why not today?
I feel a little uneasy knowing that I put someone’s gifts in the trash, but I’m sure it’ll be better than feeling sad every time I look at one of them and think it never gets used. Now I have my storage bin back, and was able to put stuff away that had been sitting around the house. Namely, my children’s stuffed animals. 🙂
