    You can’t throw it away. After throwing it away that’s is when you’ll need it.

    Maybe it’s a hoarder token.

    That’s the conversation I have with my wife every now and then.

    I dare not throw away any of the cables stored away, ’cause you never know.

    I finally throw it away and then 2 weeks later, I find what it went to.

    It’s small so throw it in the junk drawer. And don’t say you don’t have one. A junk drawer is a must.

    Just yesterday I found the thing for the thing.

    Now I can’t seem to find the thing that the thing (for the thing) was for.

    I hold on to the piece because at some time I bought the thing it went to—a 2nd time— then found the original. Sigh…

    We’re moving. We’re throwing away all that crap now. Ugh.

    It’s always nice to learn that you’re not the only one who does something like this.

    I threw a headset away because I’d had it for years and hadn’t used it. Then, it turned out I needed one for work.

    I’ve got a drawer full of these. And boxes under a bed. Just… in… case.

    Not throwing stuff away is pretty endemic to all of us and that is ok, until it is the garbage you won’t throw out. Then it really is hoarding.

    I am second generation, I hoard the same things my father had hoarded when he was alive. Even though some of the stuff is over 50 years old, sometimes it does come in handy.

    I have a container in the shop for these unidentified, familiar objects. The label says UFO,s.

    Pretty sure there’s a movie named Die Hoarder.

    Had a business once and we had a ‘widget’ sit on the shelf for years collecting dust. I finally threw it away and that same day someone wanted it. Luckily it was still in the dumpster unharmed, I didn’t tell the customer it was in the dumpster because then they’d want it for free.

    My parents were hoarders. In 1987. I found receipts for my father’s clothing purchases for the previous 60 years. And after he died in 1991, I found a photocopy of some very valuable autographs with the comment “I have the original” on it. But I had already trashed over 75% of his hoard by then, and he was dead. And that’s why you don’t discard things needlessly.

    This isn’t hoarding. Critical or not, such odd little items as portrayed here sometimes can be restored to the device from which they took their leave. I’d keep it.
