Do You Have Too Much Junk?
You may not consider yourself a HOARDER . . . but a new study found that nine out of 10 people could make at least $1,500 just by selling the old junk they don't use anymore. And the study found almost EVERYONE has some clothes, books, or shoes in their house they never use.
Next time you complain about not having enough money, ask yourself this . . . just how badly do you need your broken tennis racket and your VHS copy of "Four Weddings and a Funeral"? A new study found that nine out of 10 people could make at least $1,500 just by selling the old junk they don't use anymore. We're not saying that's the actual value of your junk . . . just the amount you could probably sell it for. And the study found almost EVERYONE has clothes, books, and shoes in their house they never use. One in three people still hold onto old VHS TAPES and audio cassettes, even though they KNOW those aren't coming back. So you may not consider yourself a HOARDER, and you may not be as bad as the people who make it on the show "Hoarders" . . . but you've got a little hoarding in you. And it's costing you MONEY.
I'm hoping I can use this logic on Husbando. He's got some old gaming cards and junk that I'd like to see gone. Well. And so many notebooks. Tools in the foyer instead of the garage. Sandpaper on the desk. So many figurines. So many. I guess I have some junk I could get rid of as well, but... his is junkier.
Is there something your partner keeps that you desperately want him/her to throw out? An old pair of sneakers? Baseball cards? A blender? Anything at all? Do you fight about it? Have you tried to throw it out without anyone noticing? Did you get caught? Why does your partner insist on keeping it? Has it actually serious trouble in your relationship? Let me know and I'll share your answers on the air!
