The convenience of storage


Camy

596 views

As a few of you know I've recently moved. It was a pain in the rear, and in order to get out in the time required I either had to throw a lot of stuff away or store it somewhere. Unfortunately I'm an inveterate hoarder - I don't mean keeping piles and piles of old newspapers or heaps of rubbish, but I've got a lot of personal stuff like photos and ... well, stuff. You know - or perhaps you're lucky and don't. :wink:

Anyway, I got rid of two van loads at the dump, and then I found out about the concept of storage! W00T!!!

A little on-line research, and I rented a container for a month. It wasn't cheap, but it seemed to solve a problem. I'd have a month to go through my stuff and 'rationalise.' Then I could throw away the real rubbish and keep the rest. A good idea ... NOT! The month has past and I've been there once. It's still full of ... stuff, and I'm not one iota closer to 'sorting out' anything.

Ah well. Such is life ....

If it is any help Camy, I have two rooms full of the dreaded 'stuff' (I have to climb over it to get through the doors.Also a huge shed of even more worthless 'stuff.' So if you run out of 'stuff' let me know and I will ship a container full or two to you.I wouldn't want you to go without the right stuff. :wav:

Hey, I have 'stuff' too. In fact, I have photo containers (those plastic things) with a sample of sand from each set of dunes I've ever been too. I have a sample pebble from each beach I've visited. Only lately did I get rid of the sample grass strand from each meadow. My worst one was the sample box of dung, yes, DUNG, that I collected from the wilds of America. The one that finally caused me to remove those was the bison dung, which seemed to have been harbouring some rather dormant and easily roused insect life. Strange things kept crawling around, ever more bizarre, and I finally tracked down the culprit(s). I must say I was probably even more revolted than you are right now, reading this. :wav:

Possibly ... then again, possibly not! :wav: All I shall say is "Icky" :wave: Umm ... to be fair, I collect stones from the beach. But they have to have holes in them, or be really, really pretty.

The right stuff! Indeed, can't be without that. Might I suggest you ship all your stuff to Trab, then he can send his to you. Quid pro quo - as Hannibal said to Clarice. :wave:

Camy, didn't you know the only way to keep score in this crazy thing called life, keeping score in how well you're keeping up with the Jones, is to judge by how much stuff you have. The more stuff you have, the better you are as a human.At least, that's what I keep telling myself to justify keeping all my stuff...Jason

I've a theory that a person's stuff always expands - and contracts - to occupy just slightly more space than is available for it.If you've got a CD rack with 50 spaces in it, you'll have 52 CDs. If you switch to MP3s on CDR, you'll find that your MP3 collection swells until it takes up...52 CDRs.I've got about 300 CDRs full of music. And space for 275.

I think you're onto something. I've observed this myself.
