<quoted text> I understand this too. But the point is, if she feels cheated out of the "joy" of shopping for baby clothes, nothing is stopping her. If not wanting to buy more of some item she got for free is the only thing stopping her, she's probably not losing out on a whole lotta joy.
<quoted text> Vary in function? In what way? In that one has bells and whistles and works better and that another is a piece of crap, yet they both perform the same basic function? She could look at it the same way with onsies. "This one is ugly and only has one clasp in the crotch whereas this one has 4. I don't like it and won't use it, therefore I will go buy ones that I like." I don't see how its any different. Her problem is that she will not assert herself on the issues that are bothering her. She has the mentality that "MIL gave this to me, therefore I have to use it, even if I don't like it." F that.
My mom has given us old Xmas stuff. The stuff we didn't like is up in th attic. My grandmother gave me some decorative put it on the shelf crap that she got overseas. Its in the closet. My MIL(or one of her friends) gave us some little figurines depicting family. Ugly. In a closet.
You're such not a shopping, Tonka! You're also lucky you have a BIG closet.:)

Oh, eventually I do toss it. Nowadays they sneak junk into our house. I've talked about the magically multiplying stacks of boxes in our basement around here before ...
There was a chance we were going to have to move cross-country this year (still a chance we may have to move). I told the husband that if we end up needing to move, I get a dumpster first.
Oh, no - they sneak stuff into your house?!?! If you have to move, invite them to a giant garage sale where they will see you make money on all the junk. And then get the dumpster,too.

They verge on being hoarders. They have been "emptying out" their completely packed full house by taking stuff to their children's houses. When they learned I was being getting grumpy about it, they stopped telling me about it, but boxes started magically multiplying downstairs. My husband hoards (empty) boxes so I guess they thought I wouldn't notice.

Nobody wants this stuff. It's mainly the dollar store (aka, five-and-dime) junk of its day.

Your only hope is the dumpster and moving 1000 miles away. I'm sort of OCD so this scenario is a nightmare to me. How do you keep from blowing a gasket?

I do live 1000 miles away from them. They haul this junk 1000 miles several times yearly to dump it in my basement.

I think if they lived closer, I would have already have blown a gasket. Because my basement would probably be full up junk rather than only partly up junk.

(They manage to haul the junk without me "noticing" because they haul it up in their RV. I try to avoid the inside of their RV because it's generally packed so carefully full nobody can move much in there.)
