<<- Another item on my wish list is purchasing storage cabinets. My cheaper alternative is to remove the need for the cabinets by throwing stuff away.

Heh, heh! My theory is that storage containers and stuff are the SPAWN OF THE DEVIL!

I was in a retail shop that specialized in selling container stuff a couple of years ago. A sales clerk asked me if she could help me, and I replied with the line I gave above.

Well ---that set her back on her heels a bit until she decided I was kidding, and then she stage whispered back, "Yes, but don't tell anyone or we'll all be out of a job!"

Pretty funny, I thought.
