I had a lot of stuff. No, really. Lots of crap. My family has always had hoarder tendencies. It's understandable looking at the conditions they had grown up and such, but we're past those conditions. Yet I was brought up to hold on to all sorts of old, broken, duplicate stuff just in case. Not only that, but if you get something new, keep it in pristine condition and never use it ... use the old one.
