Gifters with poor boundaries

Ever been given a gift you just can't wait to re-gift?

Gifters have the best of intentions, but it's not always understood. Today, I'm tackling the guilt we sometimes feel when we let go of presents that have outlived their purpose. Sarah from the Motherhood Simplified group sparked this chat with an innocent question about my former orange picker, and I'm letting you in on the lightbulb moment that followed my cross-country move. Honor the spirit in which gifts are given, don't be shackled by them. And for those tricky gifts that come with strings attached? I've got some heartfelt advice on navigating the emotional minefield they can create, ensuring you can part ways with your once-treasured items without losing friends over it.
