How long is too long?

I am trying really hard to get my basement area organized.  I have managed to put cabinets on my side (don't you love that we have the basement split into his and hers), and I am in the process of cleaning out the stuff that I don't use anymore.

I hate to admit it but because of blogging it is so much harder for me to get rid of stuff.

I see something that has been lying there for years and think no, no I can't get rid of that because as soon as I do, I will see something on pinterest made with that exact same thing.

Is it just me?  Do you do that?

Anyway,  while sifting through my treasures, I decided to be brave and discard the stuff that I have no plans for.  

For example,  I have some bathroom fixtures from our board and batten project, that I was holding onto in case I needed it.  Then there is the wooden shelf that I saved that has bows on it. It use to hang in Baby girls room when she was teeny tiny.  I have more wine bottles than you can possibly imagine.  No kidding!!  First I was going to do a bottle tree, then I started coming up with other things to do so now I have more bottles than a winery.  (Well, not quite, but I have a lot.)

So, I decided that I would just be a big girl and sort through all that stuff and take it to Goodwill.

How long is too long to hang onto shelves?  books?  high school annuals?  my kids toys?

Am I the only one who is a closet hoarder?
