    I agree with Joan. Just because you haven’t seen it doesn’t mean you don’t want it. I know, spoken like a pack rat!

    Did that yesterday. Pulled out a pressure cooker. The kids looked at it and asked what it was. Guess we hadn’t used it in a while…

    I was looking for something just the other day. Ended up finding the rice cooker. It’s a lovely machince and works well, but - there’s only two of us (humans) in the house! I can’t remember the last time I cooked more than a cup of rice at a time.

    sounds like it may be time for a tag sale.

    I can’t throw out stuff without seeing what it is first, either. It might be something I’ve been looking for and couldn’t find in my clutter.

    In our upstairs bedroom, which is used as a storage space is a closet that is 8 to 10 feed deep and the usual 8 feet high and about 4 or 5 feet wide, it is packed solid with boxes, I have no clue what is in most of the boxes in the very back and will leave it to our kids to find out.

    runner 63, that’s the kind of storage I need!

    If you don’t know when you’ll need it, throw it out. Then you’ll need it a day later.

    My ex-wife was a packrat and a clutterbug. When she couldn’t find something, she just went out and bought another one. When we split up I went through EVERYTHING. I set myself up pretty nicely in my new place with a lot of stuff she had forgot we had. I’m assuming she had her new guy take her out and buy her new stuff. His problem now.

    My kids have no problem with the health care directives where they decide when to pull the plug. But they don’t want to have to clean out my closets.

    Wife asked why I had so many of the same type of locomotive (HO, GG-1’s). “Variations in the striping & the prototype numbers.

    Over 20 years ago, my husband through away every box in the basement that had more than 2 moving labels on it and had not been opened. It’s been a running joke whenever I look for something that it must have been in one of those boxes. You can easily guess which one of us is the pack rat.
