While watching a show on TLC that my wife and I enjoy (Clean Sweep, if any of you have ever heard of it...we tend to watch a lot of those home/home improvement shows on TLC)...we got to talking about what types of stuff they would clean out of our house. It really made me realize what a Star Wars packrat I am. We have tried to get in the mode of not keeping "crap" we don't need....old clothes, things we don't use, etc....we usually take it all to Goodwill. Anyways, I am a Star Wars opener (save for a few carded figures here and there), but I have kept all of the boxes to every figure, vehicle, beast, etc. that I have ever gotten. I'm not really sure why, but I just keep them. Also, I have kept things such as Star Wars calendars, which I get for Christmas every year. I have two older wall calendars, and last year I received a daily desk calendar, which for some reason I have kept every page to after tearing it off. I'm not sure why, again. I think that I will end up trashing this stuff (specifically the calendars), but do any of you have this same problem? I don't really know why I keep all of this stuff, I just do. And to be honest, we really don't have the room for it probably...or could fit things a little better if we didn't have it. I don't keep any of the plastic bubbles, etc., and I flatten all the other boxes, but it still adds up. I was just curious if any of you are like this as well?
