Struggling with Stuff? Consign Your Worries Away.

After we doubled our number of children (read: we had a second child), my husband and I thought we wouldn’t get too much more stuff. We already had the obligatory gear, toys, and feeding paraphernalia.

And yet … these baby things tend to multiply. Or, perhaps it’s that this time around, we and our friends have wizened up to sharing and rotating our stuff. Still, there comes a point where you end up with more than you know what to do with. Though I’m busy doing loads of other things and have already donated plenty of kids items, there is a satisfaction in taking care of what my family has used on this planet, and seeing to it that it continues its useful life. The extra cash doesn’t hurt, either.
