Our definition of junk can have many variations. I see a case with tubes in it while a musician sees age and rarity that makes it valuable to him. Can I use it as a table?
We all like certain things that others don’t. My good friend loves old bikes. He always means to restore them but he is too busy with his business. Since I am not that subject let’s give him some more! You can find him at http://www.stpaulbestcarpetcleaners.com/. He does an amazing job at cleaning carpet and tile.
Anyway he has these bikes all filling up his garage and it is insane because they are not worth the space they are taking. But he won’t get rid of them. To him they are a treasure. I am afraid to ask him if that is the only place he is storing junk, I mean treasure.
My Mom is the worst. She is so bad that I have thrown away things of hers on occasion and she never missed it or mentioned it again. She has stuff that is so old and decrepit that she has paid to keep in storage for years. The amount of money it staggering. 5 years of storage. Do you know how many living room sets you can buy with that? A new car even!
There is some kind of psychological issue going on in our heads here. And what about me?
Everything that is important to me is all in two bins. Yep that’s it. Two rubber made bins. Sure I have stashes of things laying around but but all could disappear and I would be fine with it.
One thing is for certain is I will never allow myself to get to the point where I need a storage unit unless I get a muscle car to restore.
I have heard that it is something detrimental to health when considering getting rid of stuff. But consider what it is doing to your health hanging onto it.
In the end it is your choice. Place a real value number on it and make the hard choice. You only live once and no matter how you like to believe it is different for you, it isn’t.
