Devoted my entire afternoon to cleaning the office/bedroom. (Giving my time? Frankly, I am not sure. Hopefully my wife likes it.) But the end result? A mostly clean room and this thought on our possessions.
“One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” — Wise old saying
In my humble opinion, this wise old saying is a load of hooey.
The wise old saying should read,
“One man’s junk is another man’s … trash.”
If it is worthless,
If no use can be thought of for it,
If one might earn a dollar by selling it,
If it has not been used in years,
If Goodwill will not take it,
If it cannot be recycled,
Then throw it away. And don’t replace it. Better yet, don’t buy it in the first place.
It just gets in the way of something truly valuable.
