A few weeks ago, I finally found a dining room set that I (we) like and placed the order. Then The Husband and I realized that we've always used the dining room as a holding area for our stuff (polite phrase for Junk Room), so went to work to clean it out. BUT, we first had to clean out the basement to make room to put some of this stuff from the Junk Room. What a mess! As we were cleaning out the basement, we went through a lot of worthless, but sentimental, stuff.
Some fun junk that we found:
- My employee in-processing folder from my company that I joined 20 years ago
- Copaxone injection logs from the past nine years (why was I saving those??)
- The Husband's entire income tax records from since he started working (and he is retired)
- DOS books (remember dot prompts and black screens? Ah, those were the days)
Once the dining room is cleared out, I've got to work on de-cluttering the guest room, and then my 'office.' I wonder what I'll find there?What interesting things are you holding on to? If you had to clean out your junk room, what would you find?
