I'm not a hoarder, I promise, but I do have trouble throwing things away. When we moved last September, Rebecca "helped" me donate a lot of clothes and items I haven't worn or used in years. I somehow grow these emotional bonds with THINGS.
Me: You can't throw those away, those were the first jeans that I ever bought that made me really start to like jeans again!
Rebecca: When was the last time you could fit into them?
Me: My junior year of college.
Rebecca: They have a giant hole in the crotch, even if you could fit into them, you wouldn't wear them.
Me: We're keeping them. I loved them.
That conversation happened over and over again with item after item: electronics, shoes, magazines, movie tickets, etc etc etc.
Now, I'm at a crossroads. We need to carve into our invite list, but I don't know how to do that. Our perfect guest list, with which I've grown attached, needs to be trimmed. Each guest is on that list for a reason - we consider them close friends or family. That being said, we need to get rid of some people. I'm not good at this.
Does anyone have tips on how to weed through the guest list? I need help.
