Less Stuff, More Fun

It started with a brief conversation with my buddy regarding my desire to de-clutter my abode. You see, some might say I'm a bit of a hoarder; to which I typically reply "I'm not a hoarder, I'm a pack-rat who happens to be a slob". Yea, that's how it started.

Anyway, I decided that it would be really good to do a few of the following things:

  • get rid of some stuff
  • clean up a bit
  • make a place for stuff that doesn't have a place
  • put stuff where it belongs

In this regard, I felt it would be a really good thing if my musical instruments could be put in a place that would keep them out of the way, but still make it really easy to pick up an instrument for playing.

One Man's Trash

Me: I really need to make a wall mount for my bagpipes
Buddy: you can use the drop bars I ran over with a lawn mower
Me: shit yea!
Buddy: reduce, reuse, recycle
(events may not have been exactly as described)

...and after today's coffee, armed with a few brackets and screws that were lying about, I soon had a nice wall mounted bagpipe holder. aaaaaalright!

Next up, a banjo holder.

Now quit reading, and go put stuff out of the way.

My mum is bit of pack-rat and it seems so I am. And we are bit of slobs too. But I like to think it's part of creative nature for us. :P

I've been on an unholy crusade to get rid of my stuff; one van-load of computers recycled (with another ready), two beds given away, one garage sale of stuff dealt with... it's just gonna be me and the laptop soon enough. :)

The problem with being creative is that *everything* can be reused in some fashion, and I feel the need to collect things that I hope to use in the future.

This has led to me amassing a lot of crap.

Prove you are human by solving a math problem! I'm sorry, but due to an increase of blog spam, I've had to implement a CAPTCHA.
