Holy moly. I save EVERYTHING! You never know when you might need, say, 40 prescription bottles. Not big enough? Try any of those one hundred margarine containers. Ten Barbies and Mrs. Beasly. Every paper I wrote in college. Every legal document I ever created. Nearly every photograph I've taken, or accumulated, since I was ten. Spiral notebooks, which may or may not have any unused paper in them. Most of the corsages, etc., from high school dances, and the dresses that go with them. And the shoes. How's that for a start?
When I moved to this apartment (a year ago), a main factor of choice was how much storage is there? For just myself I need (need ) a two-bedroom apartment. And two (two ) storage areas in the basement of the building. And I know which boxes are which (even tho they are all identical) - which direction I want them stacked, which is top and which is bottom.
You get the idea. Whatever happened to the OCD thread?
