6409Re: E-Mail Pack-Rat/Where's Steve?
- Dec 15, 2001Oh, yes, Jim ... I definitely am an e-mail pack-rat. But as for the
house, I'm a "ditcher!" I'm glad I've been an e-mail pack-rat cuz I
have a lot of really cool e-mails sent to me by my (now deceased) Dad.
Some of them are a real "hoot" to read, especially now, and I'm able to
share them with my Mom, brother and sisters ... Never underestimate the
potential value of saving old e-mails :- )
As for the house, I have a rule: If we haven't worn it or used it for 2
years, it goes into the #1 or #2 trash bags. I have 3 trash bags ready
when I get into my "Ditch It" mode:
1 - Give it away
2 - Throw it away
3 - Put it away
Everything you own fits into one of these 3 categories if you really
think about it. Another thing that's helped me lately is this simple
maxim: Don't buy any more stuff than you need! I'm in the "download"
phase of life here ... Less "stuff" makes life simpler and easier to
manage. This does not apply to telescopes and eyepieces, of course, but
to belongings in general ;- )
Well, that's my "take" here ... our house isn't any more cluttered than
anyone else's is, from my general observations, but there's always room
for improvement ;- ) However, you don't want to look at my e-mail Inbox
