Magazines are one thing I used to save way too long, but have been getting better at tossing.  I've thrown all my old computer magazines, Readers Digests, Consumer Reports, and Consumer Reports on Health in the recycle bin. 

I'm also much better at tossing old catalogs.  I have a place for them, and when I get a new one, I put the old one in the recycle bin.

Since I became an atheist 20 years ago, I have no problem throwing out all the religious magazines and books as I come across them.  That feels so good.

I will admit to being a bit of a packrat as it comes to magazines, in my case, Car and Driver, The Absolute Sound, and Stereophile, especially if they review cars or equipment I either own or hope to own in the future.  I'm TRYING to be better about not hanging onto every issue but ... [grumble!]

Just thought I'd drop by and say hello. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Have a nice trip Randall!

I'll be driving down to Florida Monday and Tuesday. My first stop will be a McDonalds for their coffee which I like. I'll hang on to my cup for free refills at other McD's all the rest of the way-- and maybe even upon return. I know it's cheating, but justifyable.

Funny "packrat-itis" was mentioned. Just this morning, while in the basement, I looked around to see what should be thrown out. I concluded I'll let the next owners decide! However, I'm not at all like those "collectors" shown on TV's American Pickers. Some are in their nineties and can't get rid of anything.

I see your message!

Packrat.... apart from books it's not so bad, but I must admit, the books are everywhere!

Snow, 3 inches of it this past week, with a light snifter last night. 

The trees look so pretty

I'm afflicted with packrat-itis as well, Spud. Add to that, when I turned 80 I told myself I was going to do only what I wanted to in the house; 50 years from now, who will know the difference.  

It now occurs to me, as all my children, grandchildren, and great-grand-children work to clear out my home.  It is cluttered, dirty, and a lot of it. They will remember me for my house when I moved out. 

Rhonda and Travis, Larry's son, are moving in by the end of the year and will care for it until I die and the house will return to value after the recession/depression is over. The land will hold its value, cash and investments will not. 

Laura maintains her home as I once did. Everything is dusted, mirrors clean, stuff put away, floors clean, and I love it. Someone trained her well.
