Too Much Junk

There are a lot of things I need to get rid of.

Old concert CDs that I traded for awhile back when I had a CD player. I don't listen to any of them anymore. I barely have a chance to listen to music these days. (And I'm desperately in need of more space) Concert T-shirts...

GAH

I wish I never tossed my money away on all these shirts. Some of them were from when I was much skinnier than I am now...much much.

Big sigh

Part of me wishes them out of my house and another part of me wants to keep them. I just don't know what to do.

I need to make room for ....you guessed it...MORE BOOKS! You would think with the ereader that I'd get less print books but that's not the case.

I love ebooks and print books.

Someone needs to pull up a garbage hopper by my house so I can just dump it all in and not look back.

Anyone want to help?

I find it hard to discard books and CDs. It's very painful for me. Even books that I bought at a used book store and intended for one-time re.ading

Its amazing how much space CDs and Books can consume.

I used to always take CDs out of the little boxes they come in and just keep the thin booklet. Same with DVDs where the box and leaflet are usually tokenist in any case.

A few fancy CDs have survived this (ie the ones made like books or in proper artworks).

And like you, I mainly listen digitally nowadays, so even the booklets have been crated up.

In my case an occasional massive disposal process occurs where I demote things to the next level of storage and dispose of the lowest level.

It can be quite uplifting to get the space back.

You can always cut off the sleeves of the concert tees, slit them down the sides and use them as rags. That's what I do when a tee shirt has outworn its welcome. As for the CD's? If you have a Goodwill or Salvation Army store or bin in your area they take them. Good luck. I have "too much junk" too and have been working at removing 2 items for every item brought into the house.
