Speaking to an old friend about how I'm trying to declutter a bit. She said that shouldn't be a problem for me as she's seen me let go of stuff before. She's right, I've had events in my life I've pretty much left/lost everything - including my planned future with someone (twice).
On the other hand, I still have a few items from my Vancouver life when I was 21. A glass jar that I use for sugar, it probably was a candy jar in a general store.
It's good to have things around a long time that I still use.
