Not a problem in my case- every 3-6 months, I rent a two yard
dumpster, and anything that I haven't used since I rented the last one
either goes in there, or is given away or sold if it is something that
might be of value to someone.
Never understood the concept of hording- if I'm not going to use it, I
don't want it.
I'm with you. I have a client who owns a dumpster business and he lets
me have a 6 yard dumpster for a couple of weeks a cpl of times a year.
I pay to have it emptied, but that's not too bad. I have two boxes that
used to contain kitchen sinks. One is for pieces of wood for the kid's
wiener roast parties, the other for fine pieces of other woods/odd
coloured solid surface. The rest goes to the dump. It is hard for me to
get my head around throwing a (once) $ 3000.00 300 dpi laser printer in
the dumpster.... but I have. Once in a blue moon, I'll boot my 128K
macintosh.. that one is staying. I did finally toss a 2-gig Fujitsu
hard drive, the size of a breadbox, just couldn't afford the
electricity bills to spool it up. It suffered from the odd bout of
'sticktion', we all know what that feels like.
Time for another 6 yard bucket.
I feel the same way, but over the past year, I've been purging stuff that I
haven't looked at in years. It's tough putting it the garbage bin, but once
it's gone I soon forget about it. And, there's that feeling of satisfaction
from recovering floor space or shelving space from stuff that gets in the
way when I'm doing something else.
This storage thing is a tricky business. You don't want
to create any health and safety issues. I strongly
recommend you leave it to a professional, like my wife.
I printed a copy for her and it will still be here
on our kitchen countertop 100 years from now, just in
case you ever need to refer to it again.
