12.5 Years Worth of Stuff
At work, our department is moving to another floor in the building. We've been given ample warning so that we could take our time filing, organizing, packing, dumping, etc.

I've been at the same desk for 12.5 years. That's a long time. In that time frame, I've gotten engaged, married, given birth twice, moved once, had four supervisors, worked on eighteen+ accounts and accumulated a boat load of crap in my office.

Here's what I found:

1 blacklight lightbulb
1 breastpump
2 rolls wrapping paper
2 boxes of Jolly Rancher stickers
4 vases
3 skeins yarn
6 shipping boxes (for all the packages I might one day send out)
1 Thermos
3 terra cotta planters
1 bottle opener
7 copies of the August 1999 issue of George magazine (I must look to see if these are of any value)
1 roll magnetized paper
1 ravioli maker
1 container bubble bath petals
2 unopened, brand new picture frames
1 ceramic thimble with "San Francisco" printed on it
1 Chico's catalog, from August 2005
1 book of knitting stitches
6 novels
1 automobile insurance policy from 1996

We are expected to either throw this stuff away or bring it home with us. Wish me luck.

I suggest you keep the novels (unless you've read them already), the picture frames (you might have some pics of the little ones you), might want to frame, the ravioli maker (there goes one of your new entrees), 1 of the four vases(in case you get that unexpected bouquet)and that's it! Whatever you do DON'T KEEP THE BREAST PUMP!!! (unless of course you're going to pump again LOL) All kidding aside... throw it all out!
