I have just finished having a mega clear out. I have been storing all of my papers from highschool and university in a closet. When I say 'all of my papers' I mean class notes, coursework and exam papers.
All of it is now in the recycling.
I have had this notion that it might be useful someday and that I would regret it if I didn't have it. But the truth is that I will not use it again. I have had occasions in the last few years where I needed to lookup something that I learned in university. I did not consider looking at my notes. I used the internet.
So I spent this afternoon going through the various folders, checking the contents before putting them in the recycling bin. It was a surprisingly satisfying feeling dropping the complete pile into the recycling bin outside.Go Top
