Your help and encouragement needed! Through a roundabout way, I came across someone local who buys music records and albums, and even offered to buy my record player if I have one (which I do). From my youth and being a DJ for a short while, I have over 200 albums, over 50 45s, and 200 cassette tapes. The problem? I don't seem to be ready to sell them. They are organized in the hall closet, and I play the records once a year or so. The cassettes never. What would you do?
Is the rest of your house decluttered?
Have you meticulously gone through, and reflected on, every single thing you own and now you're just left with dealing with the music?
Material detachment is a mental muscle you have to train. Starting with emotionally insignificant stuff is equivalent to the low weights. Getting rid of your sentimentals is the 400 pound deadlift; there is no easy way to do it, you have to do it right, no one can help you, and you have to be freakin' strong to do it.
If you still haven't pared down your stacks of papers; get it done first!
If you still haven't pared down your wardrobe; get it done!
If you still haven't pared down your kitchen; get it done!
If you still haven't pared down your movies; get it done!
If you still haven't pared down your books; get it done!
By the time you've gone through that and know why, to great detail why you've kept and especially why you've thrown away all those things again, you are in much better mental shape to handle sentimental items like photographs, letters and music.
