lovelyduckie:  well it is YOUR stuff. My mom did the same thing, and I’m glad she’s not being bothered with it anymore 🙂 We then took a big truck, piled most of it in the back and took it to the dump! You could also have a garage sale and maybe make some extra money? Or donate it?  

In my opinion, you can’t expect your parents to house all your things forever. It’s hugely unfair to them.

My parents packed up all my stuff and stuck it in a storage unit the summer before my senior year of college. They saved the pictures and macaroni drawings they wanted, and the rest is my problem lol. Which is pretty fair of them, really. It took me about a day and a half to go through EVERYTHING and ditch what I didn’t want (which was 99% of it).


This isn’t worth crying, getting upset about, or blaming your parents for having a big house. Get a storage unit to keep it (they’re like $20 a month) or get rid of it. You really won’t want most of it anyway, I can almost promise you that. I took a 15×15 storage unit down to 2 Rubbermaid tubs of keepsakes and 2 boxes of books.



ETA: WHOOPS! I didn’t see that this was from a year ago 😡 Hopefully OP ovaried up and figured out a solution.
