(If this is the first Keep or Purge :: Trash or Treasure post that you have stumbled upon, you might want to check out my explanation of it here. Basically, I am sharing my real life struggles with deciding what to do with the STUFF in my life.)
For my second installment of Keep or Purge – another paper item.
Last year I ordered a subscription to Hobby Farm Home magazine to support my niece’s Girl Scout troupe. When I flip through the magazine I try not to look at those annoying advertisements to either renew or order another magazine; I just rip them right out and trash them.
But this one stuck around when the others went into the trash. It wasn’t really conscious at first, but then it became an issue. I feel that I should toss it. I don’t have a great track record with using pretty images anymore. Not since I was young and I made pretty, ever-changing wall collages.
So, what’s your opinion? Have you ever kept such a useless item as a piece of stiff paper torn out of a magazine?
