US science fiction novelist & scholar (1920 - 1992)
I don’t think this is what he meant!
Horrific struggles on the home de-junking and organization front. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure and it seems that I am required to keep all or part of at least 5 ANCIENT computers because the master geek thinks there is something we need to reclaim from them. Someday.
Meanwhile, they take up space and uglify my house. I am so desirous of reclaiming useable space and NOT having an ugly home.
Of course, Master Geek would probably cheerfully (not that he does much cheerfully) toss more than a few things that I feel compelled to keep.
And we are trying to build up our food storage. Money is always a minor issue, but the bigger problem is WHERE?
