Packrat Good Will
I'm a packrat. There are no two ways about it. Two thoughts enter my mind to varying degrees whenever I think about throwing just about anything away: 1) Wow! That's a really useful item. Even though I don't need it right now, I'm sure it'll come in handy some day, 2) Okay, I really won't need that for a long time, if ever, so I should get rid of it, but I don't want to throw it away because it's still perfectly functional. I can fight through the first one a fair portion of the time, but the desire to be at least a little environmental makes it tough for me to get over trashing something that still have plenty of life left in it. Enter Good Will. I've known about them forever and have taken things to them once or twice before, but I've been doing a pretty major purge of stuff over the past couple weeks. It's very liberating and you get a nice feeling about putting useful stuff back out into the world instead of moving it to a landfill. I'm sure I'll be some level of packrat forever, but at least for some things, Good Will lets me reduce the tendency.
