Do You Still Keep a Stash at Your Parents' House?

Do You Still Keep a Stash at Your Parents' House?

First come final exams, then comes a degree, then come boxes of childhood paraphernalia. Or does it? Parents often box up kindergarten art, grade school report cards, and high school prom pictures so that when their little darlings are older, they will have mementos of their youth. But when the babes head off to college or move out of the house, the stored up items often make it up to the parents' attic where they collect dust for decades, or eternity.

On the "Solace" episode of Parenthood, the "kids" are forced to come pick through their old belongings and take what they want, with the remaining items banished to a fire pit. Frustrated with the task of cleaning out, Cosby turns to Sarah and says, "The whole point of having parents is to keep your crap in their attic." While it made me chuckle, it also sent me on a guilt trip since I still have loads of junk at my mama's house. So tell me, do you still have some items stashed at your childhood home?

Yes, I still have some memorabilia in my parent's basement. Every time I go home to visit my mom tries to make me get rid of more & more of it. Come on mom! I have a tiny apartment & you & dad live in a 4 bedroom house with a basement by yourselves... you can afford to store my cap & gown until I have a house of my own. Geez!

I still keep stuff at my parents' and I don't really feel guilty about it. I live in a small one-bedroom English basement. My parents live in a house with a full basement that they use exclusively for storage. It just makes more sense to keep my stuff there for now.

My mother wants me to come get what I have left but I am resisting. I am moving at the end of the month to a house so maybe I will relent then but we'll see.

all of my stuff from high school (yearbooks, photos, etc.) is still in my mom's garage. when i get a real house i will take it all, but it's hard to find room for stuff like that in an apartment!
