Incorporating memorabilia into Project Life

I have a confession. For some reason I feel the need to collect business cards from most of the places I visit. They usually get thrown into a pocket of my purse, and then get piled up onto my desk when I clean that purse out. I also love ripping things out of magazines and saving them for a future project. The only problem with all of this is when it comes time to moving, I am dealing with stacks of paper without a place to go. And I am torn when I have to throw these things out. It's a pretty ridiculous thing to get all worked up about. But we are moving into a new place and something has to be done. So I am making smaller piles, throwing stuff away, and just calling it a day. Basically trying to make as small of a "keepers" pile as possible. That business card that should have been immediately adhered to that mini book I made 3 years ago but wasn't? Chucking it. The itinerary from our Playboy Mansion tour from 4+ years ago that I was saving to put into a mini album or onto a layout on the other hand? Keeping it. All of this just makes me love Project Life that much more. A place for all the little bits I want to keep. And if it doesn't fit in, then I give myself permission to toss it right out. Please tell me I am not the only one who agonizes about this. You can watch how this Week 24 spread came together and see the full supply list here.
