Another item of use were all my candle making accessories. Started that collection about fifteen years ago. When money was tight around Christmas, thanks to baby, we had to buy minimal items to compete gifts for our family. Everyone got hand made, personalize candles. I'm not sure everyone liked them but the good news was I used more stuff I had been saving.
My husband is happy though, we are cleaning stuff out! So maybe the baby is helping us declutter... that's maybe a whole other blog.
