I was rummaging through my desk and found this little clipping I kept. I don't know where I got it from, but it must have been in the Chicago Tribune or the Star Advertiser.
I thought it was rather interesting. We tend to keep all kinds of papers forever.
Art keeps our receipts until his desk storage is so full he can't fit another thing. Then he culls what we don't need.
When we were moving to Hawaii three years ago, we threw out a lot of papers and documents we no longer needed not to mention selling or donating other treasures we stored in the attic and crawl space. There was a lot of stuff. Art is a pack rat.
Now that we're in Hawaii, we're trying not to accumulate stuff again. Gee, it's hard.
Now that I've posted this article on this blog, I guess I can throw it away.
