The Opposite of Buyer’s Remorse

Remember those ginormous ziplocs?

I’ve held onto them for eight months. Exactly eight months and one day later, when I sit down to clean out my office yet again, I find myself confronted with a tangle of wires, cords and connectors. I stare at it.

Sorting it out is right out … all tangled and messy. Throwing it out is out, too, because I know that even if I don’t need some of those cords right now, I will need one of them sooner or later.

So I grab the whole knot, which weighs about ten pounds, and stuff it into the ginormous ziploc, scribble a date on it with a Sharpie, and toss it in a box. It’s like having svn for physical objects!

Thanks, Ziploc!
