Do you have any personal objects that you can'y just get rid of no matter what?

It seems most people have objects or items that they get personally attached to.

I still keep lots of my old toys and action figures in my apartment for some reason. Some of my TMNT and wrestling action figures are a bit beat down and dusty by now... and yet I can't bring myself to get rid of them. I mean, sure they don't exactly fill in that much useful space tbh, but I no longer play with them either and I don't use them as decoration either tbh.

Hell, I still keep some of my old stuffed toys stored somewhere. When I was like 12 and outgrew stuffed toys I told my mother I'd like to keep them in case I'd have kids or nephews one day, so she didn't mind it. Well I have no kids or nephews, and I doubt I'll ever have either, so I guess I just keep lots of old toys to remind myself of my childhood or something?

I think I just have trouble getting rid of things I buy in general. Not talking about disposable stuff but things such as books, video games, toys, etc. I'm sure my NES and its games no longer work(haven't been able to turn it on in years), and I'd rather just play those games somewhere else these days, but I can't bring myself to get rid of them.

I know lots of people wear earrings, chains, rings, etc. Well, I don't wear any of that stuff. I also know lots of people who don't throw away event tickets and such, but I've never gotten attached to those.

What about you?

Still have a lot of my old books I don't read anymore as well as stuffed animals too. I agree that it's difficult to get rid of those things because of their sentimental value.

Oh yeah... a lot of old stuff is in the attic, but select things are still hanging around downstairs. We're not a family that gets rid of a lot (unless broken, or donated clothing). Toys, books, ect. Esp not the books. Some things that are still in good repair are being repurposed for my nephew (this kid gets some of the ORIGINAL Fisher Price stuff, not the remakes they've come out with), others are now vintage stuff to have fun rediscovering.

My old quilt I've had since I was 2 has for a long time now been folded up in a pillow case to protect it. It's a full twin bed sized blanket, but the poor old thing got so thin long ago it actually fits in there.

*grabs camera*

This is my little push Stegosaurus that occasionally went to school with me around first grade. Been sitting on a shelf behind me in the computer room for a while. It's been wearing a terry Barbie jacket since those school days. lol




Now as for things still in use... I've had a Sony cube alarm clock in use since my 9th birthday. Thing is now 29-years-old. I'll be sad someday if it quits on me, and at that point... no way in hell could I toss it. Not after so long.


Still trying to figure out where my old TMNT case and figures from back then got to...

My silver Game Boy Advance SP and my cartridges of the first TMNT 2k3 game and its sequel Battle Nexus, as well as the two Game Boy Advance Metroid games.

I remember plugging the console in for the first time on Christmas morning of 2003, and seeing that orange charging light turn on...and then playing one of the racing levels with Leonardo in the Sewer Slider while my aunt was cooking later in the day.

I also still have a Spider-Man action figure from 2002-2003 or so with magnetic feet that hangs on my fridge.

Two baby blankets, a few beanie babies, a Mushu plush that wears the scars of having been owned by a six year old with a four year old brother, Madam Alexander dolls (Wizard of Oz themed), and some little trinkets inherited from my mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

They're all at my mom's house, so I can't share pictures for now.

Now I'm wondering which ones, as I have an oldie Alice in Wonderland someone "gave" me when I was pretty young. (And by gave I mean it was mine but it sat hands off on a shelf forever and still standing nearby in her plastic protective cover.)

I have the whole Oz set. Even the house. Spent a good part of my childhood getting them for birthdays and Christmas. I even have a few of the McDonalds versions from when they did a Happy Meal line. Right now they're all in boxes because there isn't a place to put them.

My cousin has the Alice set, which I also expect is finished since she's older than me.

There's a few more Madam Alexander dolls, but I don't recall what some of them are. And a few Japanese dolls. And a three foot clown doll...which honestly is not quite as unsettling than you'd expect. And tea sets. And mini tea sets. I just want to go through the whole box and see what's in it.

Mr Duckie still has the snoopy that was his dad's. It got passed down when he was little. I have kept a lot of my original Nintendo games and console- all still working- and I still have my old music cassette collection from when Ibwas growing up- including the copy of Coming Out of Our Shells that a friend made for me off her cassette! And they all still play too! Other than those most of what I kept were books I had as a kid.

I had a copy of Charlotte's Web that was passed down from my mom, but I sent it as a birthday gift to my liittle "duckling" several years ago. It still has the nameplate in the front cover with both my name and my mom's on it. Hope shestill has it.

It's funny how we humans keep stuff around that w no longer use and that has low monetary value. We can be quite materialistic
