I consider myself fairly ruthless when it comes to decluttering but I'm struggling right now. I know many of you are expert flea market shoppers, travelers and collectors of all kinds so I figured I'd turn to you for advice.
Our collection of travel books is kind of getting out of control. I don't want to throw them away because while they grow impractical for their original purpose with each passing day, they are a little reminder of where we've been. Right now they are looking a bit garish on my bookshelf but I think they might be extra cool in 30 years or so when we are all traveling via jet packs to outerspace.
So the question is - do I continue to hold on the every growing pile? do I say goodbye to the lot? can I repurpose them for something cool? Anyone have a clever way of storing/displaying old books that might work for these?
Generally what are your thoughts on hoarding something so impractical as old paper? Discuss.
