I am trying to simplify my life with fewer "things" and have stamps (SU and others) that I really don't need. Problem is, every time I try to purge, I think, gee, I haven't tried this or that with this stamp, or oh, there was a cool card with this stamp in Take Ten....

Guess I'm having a problem letting go. But I really want to. Feeling very split personality at the moment, LOL! Fact is, I've got well over a thousand images, craft all the time, and couldn't possibly use all these older stamps AND the new ones I'm constantly adding.

So what thought process do you go through to get rid of stamps? Please share!
It's kinda like clothing; if I haven't worn it in a year, I should get rid of it.

It you haven't used it in a year, you are highly unlikely to ever use it; don't feel guilty about off-loading it in order to simplify and make better use of what you now have and are most likely to use.

I remember reading about one celebrity stamper who had 10,000 images in her collection at one time. All I could think was: How in the world could anyone POSSIBLY use that many images, when you really get right down to it?

I wouldn't be surprised if she has since purged her collection, altho I don't know that for fact.

I know I *need* to purge . . .
