Today, we will look at a few pieces of memorabilia that you should make sure gets put in the “keep” pile.
Select Children’s Toys
WE have all heard the saying, “kids grow up so far.” These words have become ubiquitous because they are true. Kids seem to grow up in the blink of an eye. It almost feels like time travel. For this reason, you should make sure to save some of their more treasured old toys. They may not play with them anymore, but when you take them out years down the line, the memories attached to those more innocent times will come flooding back for you and them. Keep a few select children’s toys, trust us.
Family heirlooms which have been passed down generation to generation must be saved. There are items which not only may have monetary value, but they have immense sentimental value as well. Whether it be a beautiful antique brooch passed down to you by your great-grandmother, or a stamp collection put together by your husband’s dad, these are items to keep around. Put them in a special box and mark it as fragile. When you move into your new home, put them somewhere safe to ensure they will be passed down to your kids when they come of age.
