Confessions of a Borderline Hoarder

Hi, my name is Greg Johnson, and I’m a bit of a packrat. Actually, I’m more of a borderline hoarder.

I made that discovery when I was doing a bit of very early spring cleaning, i.e. winter cleaning, this week. It was a bit of an eye-opener.

I think I found at least eight old AAA membership cards that I managed somehow to not throw away. I also found multiple old credit cards and health insurance cards.

On the plus side, I found an old National Geographic magazine from December 1988 with a holographic cover. It’s not worth a whole, whole lot, but it sure is pretty. Plus it has all those fun vintage advertisements scattered throughout.

Between recycling and Goodwill, I got rid of a lot of stuff. I mean A LOT. Like it took two car loads to get it all. But being able to see my counters again (and actually being able to find stuff when I’m looking for it) made it worthwhile. Plus, I hopefully won’t have to do nearly as much next year.

I couldn’t bring myself to throw away any greeting cards. But at least I can find them now. That’s a win.
