I'm a pack rat! There, I said it (but not in front of my wife shhhh!) I like to keep things "just in case", or things that have "sentimental value". I found out that I was a pack rat the first time I moved. The next time, wasn't that bad, but the last time I realized that I had a problem. Now that I'm seven years into my latest house, I can see the accumulated "treasures" and realize that they need a quick "tweak". I also knew I needed a second opinion (other than my wife) and Monica IS that second opinion!
My attitude about what I AM saving hasn't changed much, but she did lead me in a direction where I can "de-frag" (like the computer hard drive) my possessions, and get them into a workable condition where, if they ARE of use, I know where to find them, and then after a while, know when to part ways if I don't use them! I don't know if I can really begin to inventory everything that lurks in my storage spaces, but I have a better idea or what's there!
I'm not quite there yet, but it's better! Thanks for the tips Monica, maybe I'll work on a little time management so I can tool around your site a little bit more!
