Re: Interesting how we change as we grow older...

I've loved jewelry since childhood,that hasn't changed.  I have alot and change it up almost every day even if I'm going nowhere that day.  It makes me happy just seeing it.  I hope that never changes.

Re: Interesting how we change as we grow older...

@Tinkrbl44   I also have drawers full of costume jewelry... I need to just put it in zip lock bags and let  Good Will have it and sell it to help those less fortunate. 

 

You can also write off the value on your taxes...( this is a good time to go through it and get it donated before the end of this year!)  2017 TAX WRITE OFF!!!

 

 It is hard for me to part with each piece as I feel a sentimental feeling for each thing I acquired.... but, that is no reason to keep it packed away and not let someone else enjoy it.

 

 It is a new mind set that is needed.... you have to let go... as as the saying goes.. you can not take it with you.   That is what I am telling myself as I  donate or part with my acquired things.... they are only on loan.....
