Can a nostalgic person be a professional organizer?
I am thinking that it is NOT possible - without major hipocrasy!!
When think about what I'd like to declutter at my house, I realize that I don't want to let many things go myself. I see myself as the curator of memories - that I want tangible many years from now so our kids, and my family can have those triggers of great memories.
I salvage fabric and other "junk" to bring back reminders of the "good old days", before life got modern and overly full of stuff. But that is my stuff - dredging up the past!
I am hoping that somebody will give me permission to keep holding on to these things!
