    Well, this is what I was told by my son, a computer freak.
    I am sure it also has to do how they are stored.

    I'm so glad I'm not alone! ;)

    I too am a hoarder, I used to be really good about deleting the same number of kits off my hard drive when I put new ones on, but now I've been slacking at that lately, I should get back in the habit. I do go back and use kits again (if I need to, esp themed kits of themes that are hard to come by!) But that happens pretty rarely, usually I just get something new and make it work, sometimes pulling a piece or creating something for it to be part of the "theme"

    I am constantly monitoring my disk storage I purchase a lot more than I scrap, at least right now. My husband suggested I get a blue ray burner if I am concerned. They hold about 25 GB. I haven't done that yet.

    I should just delete everything I downloaded prior to 2012. I only downloaded freebies prior to 2012 and most of them aren't even unzipped. I've never looked at them. They aren't full kits. For many reasons I should just delete them. But I haven't yet.

    I'm running out of space too! I lost my EHD and I've been looking in to cloud storage, so I don't have to worry as much. but I do re use my favorite kits, I made sure I grabbed those off of my EHD before it kicked the bucket, all my old MandyMade kits have been used nurmous amounts of times! Graham Like the Cracker too! Gosh I miss there stuff!!! it all really depends on what I'm scrapping but most of the time I'll get inspired by a kit for a layout or I get inspired by a photo and make a kit or look for a new one.

    Rachel... do not trust the cloud too quickly!!!!
    I CANNOT stress that strongly enough. When 2 of my internal drives went amuck last August... DH says... no worries, in addition to the multiple EHD's we have CARBONITE-

    What a JOKE! Enrolled in 'it' in June 2013. By August they had less than 10% covered...their excuse...I had too much stuff and too many files!!

    Followed ALL their suggestions for faster UL and NO!

    After many hours on the telephone, I gave up.

    I would NEVER delete a kit I paid for. Freebies maybe. I've been doing this a long time, and at this moment my computer has 3 on board HDs, and I have at last count, 6 externals. I do keep my kits by year, by store, by designer. It's easier that way. My biggest pet peeve is when a designer leaves a store and I can't use them on that site any more. I just move them to anyother site, or their own folder.

    I am like Oriana. I have been at this for over 9 years and am a hoarder. I feel like this could be an AA meeting...

    "Hi, my name is Jen and I am a digi-kit hoarder."

    I don't delete much but as I peruse the kits (new or otherwise) the first time I open them, I always go through and throw out anything that just isn't my "style." I delete papers I don't like or won't ever use, same with elements. Maybe that's harsh but there are just some things that I know I will likely never use from a kit or papers with odd color combos that I don't like, etc. It's just my way of keeping only what I like and know I will use. I don't end up deleting much but I do end up throwing a few things. I have also started weeding out my kits I don't like or will ever use much anymore...old stuff from 3-6 years ago unless it's a great themed kit I might want to use again. I know my style has changed over the years and I don't have babies anymore so I don't need a hundred baby kits, I just keep my favorites for those occasions down the road I might need something.
