I've shared before that my husband and I are pack rats by nature and that the results of 2 pack rats marrying and producing 3 children equals a house filled with way too much junk!
But, we've been working on it for a few years now, and we've gotten really, really determined the last year or so to have less stuff.
The stuff was stressing us out, tempting us to get more stuff like containers and storage furniture to manage the stuff, and when it came down to it, the stuff was beginning to hamper us from doing the things God was calling us to do, like bring another child into our home.
So, this past weekend we had another session of cleaning out (I think we only need about 75 more of those sessions before we'll have it all under control!), and here's proof that we are, in fact, reformed pack rats:
A graduation tassel from 1994!
We took a picture of it and threw it away!
