I started having a clear out of junk the other day. I began in the spare room, this was just some of stuff from under the bed, bottom of the wardrobe and in a small cupboard.
20 assorted sized jiffy bags, saved for ebay sales.
3 shoe boxes full of bubble wrap, as above.
3 dozen empty DVD cases.
8 assorted sized CD-R cakebox spindle pack thingummys. Yeah, they came in useful.
8 voile curtains that might come in useful, yeah right its been 2 years since we took them down and guess what? No possible use has been found..
Approx 3 years worth of PC Format cover disc CD’s 1999-2001. I have no idea why I thought to save these.
Original, boxed copies of the following games, all on 3.5″ floppy discs
Sim City 2000
I dont even have a floppy disk drive anymore!
I also listed 8 items on ebay, a couple of SKY receivers, a wireless router and a few other things that should free up some space.
I’ve only scratched the surface, but I think I’ve turned a corner. I didnt feel bad throwing all this stuff out, usually I put it off, telling myself that its all useful stuff. Now I’m thinking, stuff that, if I throw out something I need later, I’ll just buy another one!
Still loads more to do, in fact its just come to me that I could do a book giveaway, last year Lezzles was kind enough to send me a book during her clear out. I’m totally going to do the same, give me a minute to go gather some books and I’ll post a list.
The only place I draw the line is my Heinlein book collection, I positively refuse to part with them!
