Periodically, John and I decide to look for stuff to give to the thrift store. I have noticed a trend. He can easily spot stuff of mine that I no longer use (and probably never will) ripe for purging and the reverse applies. However, we both balk at letting our own individual items go. Also, neither one of us presses the issue either which is good as there are never any arguments over it. The bad, our house stays cluttered. For example, I have a manual rowing machine I picked up from a yard sale 10-years ago. It has an inch of dust on it. If I ever decide to get into rowing, I will need it to get in shape, so it continues to sit in our house. I did find some items to purge though.
