Tales From The Packrat

Dear Joel,

            I’m a packrat, I’ll admit it. I have tried to get organized, but I am nagged by thinking I’m going to need something or that I will run out of something. Do you have any suggestions?

            Try writing a date on some of the things you buy. You will be amazed at how fast time goes by. That should make freshening up things easier. Don’t you deserve nice new things? Another idea is to buy a shelf and put some of the items that you think you can’t live without on it and see if you ever touch them. You may just see you didn’t really need them after all.
