So true Brian....We had a fairly major snow storm up here a few weeks ago and a neighbor asked if he could bring his car into the shop to do some work on it and he would do it outside except for all the snow. I reluctantly said alright. He brought what he said where his own tools and mentioned that he used to have a lot more but over the years they "grew legs and disappeared" but, I can remember having lunch bags that I brought to school that where bigger than the tool "bag" he brought over. So, of course he needed to borrow some tools...I hate doing this but, he was already there so I told him where the tools where.

He was there for 2 hours before he was done...he thanked me and drove of into the sunset. It took me 3 hours to round up my tools and put them where they belonged. His tools didn't grow legs, he didn't put them away and lost them.

One of my pet peeves.

i lived in NC for 16 yrs. built a barn and started ''storing'' stuff up in the loft.
when i moved we had a HUGE bonfire of wood i was saving for projects and furniture that i was going to fix some day
i'm going on my 16th yr in our MI house with a barn/shop, upstairs of the barn is empty.
i figure if i'm going to store it out of sight i might as well pitch it

upstairs of the barn when it was re-roofed 2 summers ago...



above this door is a basket ball hoop, my kids use to say they were the only ones with indoor half court basketball

I love it when they go to some old dude about to take his last breath saying how he has to get rid of the stuff and asks too much for every thing they ask him about.

Sometimes at night the Wiffy will watch "The Pickers" and "Storage Wars" on the bedroom TV. It's those times that I'm so glad I'm hard of hearing and can just turn over and go to sleep.

I'm telling you guys, my friend who passed away two years ago, he had a great car collection, and a great baseball memorabilia collection and a great JUNK collection. He had a number of very valuable thing, from a beautiful all steel 32 Ford Three window to signed bats and balls of the greats like Joe Dimaggio and Willie Mays. But he had WAY too much stuff that wasn't worth a thing, he was sleeping on his couch with all his three bedrooms filled with stuff. His back yard was full of cars. Just two weeks before he died he told me "I need to get rid of some of this stuff, I will never get to it". Yep, he never did, RIP Steve, damn I miss that guy.

i watched one episode of storage wars and it confirmed my suspicions that most people who rent storage should just toss what they're storing.
around here self storage is everywhere, a 10x20 self store will cost you $265/mth or $3180/yr
paying $3180/yr to store junk that is worth $1000 total is a waste of $$.

I have seen it over and over, we are talking a $100 of stuff stored for YEARS. I have a number of personal connections with mind blowing examples. One paid for for years totaling $6000 for a bunch of junk that eventually ended up in their back yard until the weather destroyed it and it was thrown away. And it would STILL be in the storage locker if not for the fact that the place was knocked down for a road widening project.

It's something that we all do to some respect, that is why I posted the thread, just to bring some attention to it. Maybe someone sees their self in the discussion (I know I have) and does something to help themselves.
