Where'd All This Stuff Come From?

I never really realize how much of a pack rat I am until I need something and I have to go through tons of moving boxes to find it. Our condo is perhaps the smallest we've had since we got married, and it seems to me that we have more boxes than we've ever had - there simply is no space for all our things!

Last night, for some reason, I was unable to get any sleep. Oh I am sure I dozed off for a bit, but I was awake by 6am, and trying to go back to lala land just made me frustrated. So I got up and tried to get some work done. I remembered that I needed this receipt for some papers that I need to get (you can't imagine just how much paperwork is required to take the board exam!) so I started digging around. That's when I realized we have been keeping things that should have been thrown out ages ago.

Take a look:
  • Tons of receipts - electricity bills, LPG delivery receipts, rent receipts - all from 3 years ago!
  • Empty bottles of liquor - can't throw this away, J seems to be attached to them.
  • Hats - lots of them!
  • Bags - and I thought I gave half of them away when we moved here.
  • Wires - cable TV wires, telephone wires, extension cords, and some other wires I can't even remember buying
  • Letters - I guess I should keep those :p
  • Photos - hundreds of them which are not in photo albums. I think this is going to be my next project!
I hate not getting any sleep and being up at 6 in the morning!!!
