If you can’t decide whether or not it’s time to give up those baby items, pay attention to these 5 signs that it’s time to part with your baby items.

The Baby Items are Outdated

Was your last baby 10 years ago or more? If so, it might be time to part with those baby items. To make it easier on yourself, save a few baby outfits from each child. Create a shadow box with those items and put it somewhere where you can see it every day. You can also donate those baby items to someone else who could use them. After all, they’re not helping anyone just sitting in storage.

You Have Dedicated a Whole Room to These Items

Although parting with these items can be extremely difficult, there’s no need to store items you won’t be using anytime soon. A layer of dust is just a small indication that it’s time to start thinking about parting with your baby items.
