I have to clean a lot because I have a lot of “items” , not sure what to call it all.
Things I have had for a few weeks & things I have had for as long as I can remember.
I thought everyone had as much stuff as me, until I moved to California and between Rindi and I, we filled from floor to ceiling an entire full size Uhaul.
When I told people we were getting a Uhaul, the constant response was ” Why can’t you just load up your car and drive down?!”
This blows my mind… how could ANYONE pack up their lives belongings into a car a move 1400 miles away? I could fit all my clothes and some shoes in my car maybe. No where near the items it would require for me to make a home for myself in a new place!
First of all I had a new mattress, that was NOT getting left behind…that wouldn’t fit in my car… so I would have to rent a trailer, so might at well go all out and get the damn full size semi truck and take it all!
So, we did.
Anyway, so much of my stuff consists of collections.
( anyone remember the San Fransisco Music Box company store that used to be in Southcenter mall )
flattened pennies, postcards and pogs.
The list goes on, I get hooked and I can’t have just one.
I only have a few displayed in my kitchen right now while the rest of them are still boxed up in the garage.
I need a china hutch for them all I think.
What do you collect? What is your oldest collection that you still have today?!
