The fold-up file folder boxes I'm using to pack my study cost about $1 USD each. I've filled 20 of them so far. This morning, while looked at some of the random stuff left to pack, it occurred to me to ask "Is this pile worth spending a dollar on?" For most of what I'm looking at, the answer is a clear No. Now I need to find a dumpster.
Complicating the job are some of the papers and magazines that have been buried. Old copies of neat technical papers, stuff I've published, etc. I'll find one while filling a box, then *poof* it's 20 minutes later, I'm back from memory lane, and the box is still half-filled.
