I understand.. When we downsized from a house to a unit I had to part with a lot of things.. Darling Husband made me realise that I had a lot of things that I didn’t really “need” and it was actually really theraputic getting rid of these things and essentially uncluttering my life.

Men don’t reeally get attached to things like women, so it is hard for your SO to understand. It doesnt mean he doesn’t care though!

I used to be very attached to my stuff too.  When I got divorced, my ex knew how I felt about certain things and fought me on everything….made sure he got his 50% exactly.  So I lost a bunch of stuff (half my house) and b/c I was in the states and he was overseas….I went w/o my stuff for almost 2 years….except my clothes in my suitcase!  I missed it soooo much and then when I got it, it didn’t mean as much to me.  Which has been nice b/c Darling Husband is such a packrat he can fill an entire house with just his stuff!

I know buying those first things is sentimental but try to remember that ONE day you would have had to replace them anyways and maybe that will help.
