Just couldn't do it!

I've been trying to "purge" the house.
I've been going room to room, cleaning and purging.  Usually I'm pretty ruthless.  I've been known to make stealth trips to Goodwill so Mister can't see what I'm hauling away.  He has the "hoarder gene" in his DNA.

Today I'd planned to box up my collection of chef's (which has been in a cabinet and hasn't seen the light of day in 10 years).

Just couldn't do it!

Instead, I cleared out a cabinet in another room and moved these little guys into it.  Not sure why I couldn't let them go. They received a reprieve.

I'd swear they smile at me now when I pass by.

That's a very cute collection of chef's! I hope to purge our house this year but not feeling motivated at all.

Whew!!!! That was a close call!!! So happy to hear they survived!!! I purge, too, in small increments.....a shirt here, a dish there...nothing too serious!
Really, I take at least one black garbage bag worth of stuff out nearly every week. Some goes to Goodwill - some to the curb -some in the trash!
Good therapy.

Oh! I'm so glad you kept them.
What sort of decor do you have in the kitchen now?

AW! Sometimes ya just gotta do what ya gotta do! and in this case, it was KEEP your CHEFs!!!
You'll know when and IF it is time to get rid of them. Who knows maybe one of your kids will decide they HAVE to have them when you're finished with them....or maybe not if they are like my kids LOL!
Glad everyone is feeling better at your house...FINALLY!!!

I've found when trying to purge that I have to make sweeps. I think that as a thing gets saved from the purge you kind of acknowledge your love for it and after several days, weeks or years of passing and professing your love, you can then let it go. On the other hand, I have never seen a collection of Chefs. Certainly very cute and unusual.
