Alternatively titled, "Stimey Reveals Levels of Crazy Heretofore Unsuspected."
Remember the "piles of really ridiculous stuff" that were in my closet before I decluttered part of it?
Here is one of them:
Yes, I had a giant pile of intact cardboard boxes AND inflatable packing material stored in that closet. Because you just never know when you'll need to mail something and the post office will have run out of boxes.
There is one time a year—Christmas—when I am glad I have boxes and packing material, and even then I usually use more recently acquired boxes instead of this stash.
And the packing material? What I've done here is make air take up space. God, I'm an idiot. I got rid of ALL of that.
But still, even though I accept the fact that I am completely insane, I cannot help but keep some of the boxes. Maybe next time I go through this closet, you'll see me get rid of those that remain:
I count 9 boxes recycled and 1 big pile of inflated plastic.
