I think it’s been almost a year since I last visited my storage unit in Vegas. This tiny unit contains all the things that I didn’t think I could live without.
And now I know that’s not true. But what’s funny is that I always forget what I kept. When you sell and donate [almost] everything you own in a very short period of time, it can be difficult remembering the finer details of what you kept (when it all just went into storage).
So when I visit my storage unit, it feels very much like a yard sale designed exclusively with me in mind…
It’s just a bunch of random junk that I can’t help but find absolutely fascinating — because I kept it for a reason. And so all the items still appeal to me even though I don’t really have a need for them.
It’s the same thing with every box I open and every item I see, “Whoa! I want this!” and “Coooool!”
But in a real yard sale, I’d be all like trying to talk the seller down because I don’t need any of it… It would just be neat stuff to have.
Scissors! Cork screw! Beach paddles! An electric kettle! A memory foam airplane pillow! CDs! Bike water bottles from Moab!
Maybe I should do a giveaway…
