    And it took me hours just to do the top! :cuss:

    Why do we collect so much crap? Man i had stuff in there from the 80's. Finally said enough and have been doing some spring cleaning, it was a long time coming, years in fact.

    How old is the junk you keep?

    I try to follow a couple of rules

    1,If you haven't touched it in 6 months, you probably are done with it, toss it

    2. For every bit of volume(stuff) you bring into your house, an equal or greater amount needs to be thrown out or donated



    It's pretty simple once you get the hang. Feels great to get rid of clutter. plus when you have less shit, it's harder to lose the shit you do want/need, among the clutter

    I think one problem people have is that we are now a disposable society, but our instinct is to keep everything.

    When I was a kid, you had one of everything forever...shit lasted. you didn't buy stuff all of the time

    Hi Freds. Good job man, at some pint gathering junk has to end. I had baseball caps from the 80's. Why?

    Nothing worse than plastic junk, it seems to multiply and you can never get rid of it.
