This resonates with me as I too, have cupboards full of things I've collected. Some day I'll have to move to a smaller home and don't want to leave the problem of my stuff for that day, so I keep cleaning and sorting, hoping someone will need these treasures.

I wonder if I've been saving these things for displaced people. The seamstress from another country might want my bits and threads. They might appreciate the bins of material and other bits and bobs.
