    I have like 30 books from year 8, 9 and 10 and I need to make room for like my current yr 11 books and other revision stuff. I hate throwing all those books filled with memories away, full of knowledge and ****- it just makes me feel really guilty ;/ Anyone else get this or is it just me???

    I hate getting rid of stuff when it's been really useful to me in the past, I sort of develop a bond with it and I feel strong sentimental value towards it. Like, I used to train at home for my first 2 years of training, but I've been going to the gym for the last couple of years - I still have all my weights at home, I don't use them anymore and they're taking up space but the thought of getting rid of them upsets me cause we went through so much together :cry2:

    I keep my old school books. I tie them together and put them in the attic. Looking through them brings back memories, just like a diary or photo.

    That's exactly how I feel, not just with school books but with other stuff too. I simply can't let go, I love reminiscing. Even the little things I notice such as the changes in my language, handwriting and writing style

    That's a good idea! I might just do that
