    A trip to your well organized collection of useful items is cheaper and faster than any trip to Home Depot or Lowes, and faster than ordering online.

    I was not brought up in poverty; but it runs in my family to keep a collection of useful things. Stuff is purged as it is used or when the space is needed for something of greater purpose or value.

    Yeah, although I admit I've overdone it, and now I'm agonizing over paring down the pile a bit.
    Don't pare the pile down. Stop giggling, die and, perhaps, win.

    I don't enter competitions that require winners to die.

    Ah - but no one gets out alive!

    I keep telling My Faire Spouse that if I croak she can call in MonBack Brothers and have it trucked away, no guilt -- I won't know!

    A few months ago I decided I had too many cameras, estimating the total to be around sixty.

    After selling some and giving others away, I counted up what remained and was shocked to find seventy one!

    I have all ways had to have 2 of everything I use when related to photography. Even if I never use the first one, I have a backup just incase something happens to the one I don't use.
    Then if I decide to sell something, I allways need it 2 weeks later since I sold both.
    Crazy ain't it.

    I'm afraid that someday I will need it and won't have it. Want to see my stash of photo Kodak printing paper?

    Exactly!

    Even better, as a singleton I don't have to justify my 'collection' to anyone!

    *closes eyes and listens to blissful silence*
    Cheers,

    My "problem" is the opposite. I have a spouse that won't throw anything out if somehow you can imagine a distant future use. I prefer space.. empty space is what I would like to hoard. Even the garage which is filled with bits of wood and old bicycle parts and nearly empty paint cans waiting to be recycled, would be a dream come true for me if it was empty and I could make it what I want it to be... another place for making still life photos.
    Let me rest my eyes on an empty room.

    1- There is no "if" about it;

    2- I won't know! Are you sure?
