I have my old stamp collection from when I was seven. My husband has common baseball cards from the 50s.
We have scrapbooks and CDs. Who really uses CDs anymore?
We have seashells that I collected from every beach vacation that we took.
We have seven years of tax returns.
We have gardening tools that may be considered antique by now.
I have afghans and shawls that I had knitted. I have all the circular and straight knitting needles I thought I would use forever.
We have balls – baseballs, tennis balls, basketballs, bowling balls, beach balls, soccer balls, golf balls.
I have throw pillows from every decorating and redecorating phase.
I have carpets from every decorating and redecorating phase.
We have playbills from all the Broadway and off Broadway shows we have ever seen. They don’t take up much space and they tell a story of fun.
We have lived in this beach cottage of 984 sq. ft. for decades!!!! So how much stuff could we really accumulate in such a small space?
And yet there is still all this stuff!!!!!!!
