  •  My shed (1+ / 0-)

    is my shame. There is stuff in there I haven't used since I put it in there when I bought the shed in 1996. Seriously. Most of the stuff I do use that ends up in there could be put in a small gardening shed. I don't even like the shed--it's one of those masonite-sided things with double doors and a Dutch roof. I hate Dutch roofs. I just as soon remove the gardening stuff and burn the shed down to ash that would enrich the garden.

    Christmas ornaments--I don't celebrate Christmas
    A broken saddle--no horse
    Slip-casting molds from ceramics class--I don't do clay anymore
    three 10-gallon aquariums--wtf?
    8 years-worth of Lapidary Journal magazine--it was always a dumb magazine
    a collection of Deep Space Nine memorabilia
    a collection of Police memorabilia
    3 weed whackers
    1 reel lawn mower
    3 broken lamps
    2 broken chairs
    a purple inflatable shark

    I have planned to clean the shed out for over ten years now. It is so overwhelming I can't get started.

    •  Oh don't diss the DS9 memorabilia! (0+ / 0-)

      Cause I love DS9.  I could make room in my car for it if you're selling!

    •  start with the inflatable shark, (0+ / 0-)

      then throw out the broken stuff.  After that, it's hard to say.  THREE weed whackers?  Could you sell two of them on Craig's list?
