I'm 38 and I've got a lot of "stuff". Practical stuff. Documents. Memories. Cards. Bottles. Game figures. Games. Stuff, you know? We've all got stuff lying around. When I moved out to my apartment in Liverpool I basically took clothes, a desk, cameras, and a computer. That was it. I had an inflatable bed and a chair to work on. 7 years later and I've accumulated a lot of stuff, which has been made worse by my dad dying last year.
I've been forced into taking on more stuff simply because I didn't want to get rid of it. For example, touristy gift shop stuff from mines we went down as a kid. I have no use for them but they've been by my dads front door for decades. It's hard to let go. The photo above is from a photo essay I produced of things I found at my dad's from my childhood. Do I need a copy of Workbench for an Amiga? No. It's not very big to keep but it all adds up. Hard to get rid of though.
