Recently I’ve been thinking that we have a lot of this around our house.
Ever since my husband and I started talking about moving, I’ve been looking around and noticing how much junk we have. Books, clothing, CDs, boxes and boxes of I-don’t-even-know-what in the garage. (What IS in those boxes anyway?) The contents of one our guest rooms alone could probably stock a thrift shop.
In my twenties and thirties I was much more sentimental about my junk. Oh, I can’t get rid of that. Some guy who was a friend of my grandparents handmade that for me. No, no—not that toy horse. That was the one my best friend gave me when we were in elementary school. No you can't throw THAT away. That was a note my friend passed to me during class in high school! Now I just think--let's get rid of it!
All of the books and trinkets are just dust collectors. I’m tempted to call 1 800 Got-JUNK when we move.
Are you sentimental or practical about your junk?
