Everything in today’s de-cluttering is something I might regret getting rid of later. But isn’t that the point?
29. This clay extruder.
Used in my studio for extruding clay or wax. Very useful when I need it. I haven’t needed it in nearly 15 years.
30. This mini plane.
It came with a set of craft knives, and I can’t recall ever using it. I’m sure I’ll think of a use for it as soon as it goes in the trash.
31-34. These four knobs.
Can’t think of anything I have that needs a knob and doesn’t have one. Besides, they’re about 50¢ a pair at the shop where I got them.
35. This teapot lid.
When I moved into my current loft two years ago, there was no kitchen. I couldn’t afford cabinets right away, so I put up a swanky new set of shelves. Two weeks later, at five o’clock in the morning, they came down with a crash… breaking every dish I owned. Except for this teapot lid.
36. This old film camera.
What a trusty, reliable camera this was. I took it on my first trip to Scotland in 1997. When I opened it up, the battery still worked. Hasn’t had film in it in at least 8 or 10 years.
