Find a charity or other organization that helps moms getting back on their feet or starting out on their own. Knowing that your child's outgrown or unused things will be helping another child get a better start in life will make it easier to let go!

some thoughts off the top of my head -

Scan or take lots of pictures of papers, clothes, toys that are sentimental - I have a picture of myself wearing my favourite outfit when I was 5 - I had outgrown it (almost) so it was a tight fit at the time but I still have the picture and I still remember how awesome that little outfit was.

Involve your daughter in the process - share stories of the outfits/toys as you pack them away - make a memory of doing it together rather than focusing on the "stuff"

use the $20 rule - if it cost less than $20 to replace you can get rid of it

If you donate to a thrift store and it's hard to let go of things, think about how delighted someone else will be to find an lovely item at a good price.

If you use a consignment store, think about what you could use the extra money for.

Try to enjoy the process emoticon

Hi Team,
Any tips on what to keep and what to dump for a sentimental mommy such as myself?? My daughter is now 5, so of course I have gotten rid of a lot. But I still have more bins of baby clothes, toys etc., than we need. I also have a ton of school projects and papers. It's hard for me to get rid of these things. Does anyone have any thoughts or tips that helped them decide what to keep and what to dump???
