‘becka, my mother used to get rid of my and my siblings’ stuff. But I’d retrieve my stuff from the trash! But i bet I’ve inherited getting rid of things from her, though.
Wow, now, that was certainly minimalist in your dad’s house, lol!!! Even my apt isn’t quite that sparse!! And I do have central heating, even if I don’t receive a ,lot of heat… And I just can’t live without a microwave!!!
You know, it intrigues me that your boyfriend wants everything on the pc. I worried about the HD getting wiped, and a friend told me that CDs and DVDs can get wiped if exposed to a magnetic source, just as a pc’s HD can. I had been worried about DVDs and CDs, too, going the way of the dinosaur now with the advent of digital. He said I could store stuff on flash drives, which are getting bigger with mOre gigs of storage space all the time. Food for thought… I like the idea a lot, but feel bad that I have sooo many CDs, most of them pirated, lol, and a couple hundred DVDs, and I think of the money invested, and the media and their players, too, becoming obsolete some day. Anyway, the minimalist in me has said DVDs and CDs and soft wear discs in those folders with slots for the discs; they take up far less room than the jackets do; in fact, all 6 folders fit on one shelf!!
Wow, that museum sounds facinating!! Imagine a place where old computers are exhibited. Whew, now that makes me feel old as dirt!!! BUt, yeah, I k ow what you mean about cameras, etc. I have an old brownie I’d gotten at a rummage sale and I display it. My mom actually had one when I was a kid…
As for bookshelves, it’s wild that you mention you want them, as a person posted on our freecycle here in western mass that they want bookcases. Coincidence indeed!
