When one of my best friends had a ton of shit to sort through and discard a good percentage of before moving, she asked me to help. Thankfully, she's just lazy, not a hoarder, so I don't have to deal with any "But I might find a use for that some day!" nonsensical attachment to things; she genuinely wanted to get rid of a ton of stuff, she just would never motivate to do it without me there, so I gave her one day a week until we had it done. Her spare room contained at least half a dozen boxes full of things she hadn't opened since her last move, more than ten years prior. (She agreed that nothing in there was making this latest move; we were only going through it to see what could be given way, what couldn't but could be recycled, and then trash the rest.) My mind was boggled. I'll have to tell her she's not alone. 1 1 2 Link to comment
