To sell or not to sell....

| | Comments (6)
I need some opinions...

I'm trying to decide whether or not I should sell my wedding dress.

Reasons for keeping include:
  • I'm sentimental that way
  • Stu likes the idea of me keeping it
Reasons for selling include:
  • it'd never get worn again
  • it's been used for two weddings, and could easily go for a hattrick
  • it takes up valuable storage space in a huge box
  • it's likely to just decay in storage anyway
I really can't decide.  What do other people think?

OK, so here's my non-vote: don't make a decision right away. I would keep the dress for a few months or a year before deciding. I used to be a horrible pack-rat (keeping everything), but now I try to toss and toss...but your wedding dress is a big deal! I'd hate to give it away and then regret it later. Just a thought.

I'ver been trying so hard to unclutter my life and get rid of everything I don't really need. I would love to have the opportunity to go back in time and stop myself before I kept all the things I thought for sure I would need or want again.

That being said, I don't get really emotionally attached to stuff. :-)

Sell it. You will never wear it again. I have a couple of photos of it, so there is a record of it.

That's just my opinion of course.

I keep too much stuff. When I got divorced I left a lot of things in the ex's crawlspace that I would rather lose than retrieve. I don't miss any of it and parts of me felt like I got a fresh start (clutter-wise) of sorts.
