Just wondered what items Gn's keep totally out of sentimentality - no current or future use. When I moved recently (downsizing) I did try to be quite hard hearted, as the next 'clearing out' will be by my children after I have died.
However, I have kept one large file of letters that were written to me by my children over the years. These were back in the day before emails and internet. some of them are quite faded, but I do like looking through them -most sent when they were on school trips or first went away to Uni.
The only other article I have kept - pure and total sentiment - is a tiny, knitted, all in one that I made myself for my first born who was only just 5 lbs when born - and back then no baby clothes could be bought for prems. I made this by using a double knit pattern and making it up in 3 ply. Just cannot steel myself to dispose of it although he is now in his fifties!!!
Be interesting to see what our gransnetters keep out of sentiment of their children or parents, etc.
