Things you don't use, but keep anyway.

Anyone keep stuff, whether it be electronics, books, etc, even though you haven't used it in years, or only used a few times?

I have a tablet that I used to take everywhere, until I got a smartphone. Now, I don't use it that much.

My libido.

Nah, just kidding. My old car was nearing its last legs when I got my new one. I really should get rid of the old one since I don't use it anymore but... I never seem to get around to it.

I never throw away charging chords for electronics, even after the devices themselves break down. I have a junk drawer of just power chords, 'cause you never know.

So much stuff, but I think the most useless thing I've hung onto was a box full of tokens from my previous job that could be exchanged for stuff, including days off. Unfortunately my termination came suddenly and without warning, so I never got the chance to use them.

Everything?
Ok, maybe only most things.
That is, which could be of use later. Many many things then.

..Yes, I might, slightly, be in layman's terms what is generally called a hoarder.
I prefer the term frugal or eccentric.
After all, you never know what you might need, or indeed what will come in handy in the future.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
My porn, I have like... holy shit, almost 200 gigs worth and I keep adding to it but I never look through it. I think I just enjoy having it, I mean I back it up, but I would not shed a tear if I ended up losing it.

... Damn, that is a lot of disk space used for something I don't really care about. It's on a 3T drive so its not lacking in space but still...

I guess everyone likes to collect something.

Shamefully, my Judogi. I studied Jiujutsu for ten years, and before my kids were born I was training for my brown belt. But when they arrived I found personal time outside the house was a rare premium. And I just haven't been back since. But I can't bring myself to throw it or my blue belt out.

The History of Shinobi book. I have not finished it yet, I got halfway through and stopped 2 years ago. There is also the 5th story in my John Carter of Mars 2nd trilogy book. I downloaded the Bioshock Collection for free, but still have not played any of the games yet. With Doom Eternal coming out, it's going to be put on further hold.

Camping gear. I love it for its potential, but am not adventurous enough to actually go far from home comforts.
I have 3 hammocks, two tents, one swag, two sleeping mats and 5 tarps. Also about 30m of dyneema rope.
Come zombie apocalypse I'm at least halfway there.

Mostly old audio equipment, cables, amps, speakers etc. Paperwork, bills and payslips. Cutlery, I can't throw away shitty old cutlery, but I do use it. I have new cutlery, but I use the old stuff. Travel bags, no matter how old and worn out, as long as it still works I keep it. I do use one of them, but I have about 5.

I had been a terrible hoarder, but I've been getting rid of a lot of things recently, old bits of tools, jars of screws and fixings, old electronics, chargers and computer parts, crappy old furniture, clothes from 20 years ago, university textbooks and work. Stacks of old GW novels, cardboard boxes and packing material. DVDs, old VHS tapes of shit recorded off TV over 20 years ago,

I have been slowly selling a load of old RPG books and the stacks of old GW models that I'll never paint. Made quite a bit of cash on that.

Seriously, you want an inventory of 90% of my belongings? Almost all of my stuff is unused, disused, or otherwise neglected. Notwithstanding the stuff that surely everybody holds on to without being sure they'll ever really "use" it again (old books, trophies, photos, etc) I have too much stuff that I would concede I don't need but I can't part with. Old mobile phones and hard drives are a culprit, as I never get around to moving across all those really essential files and photos. My karate uniform, gathering dust since 2008. T-shirts that are too good to go in the bin, too scrappy to donate, but which I also never wear. Old games and DVDs that I tell myself I'll one day sell or donate. And so on.

I should add that my parents are legitimate, chronic hoarders. I'm nowhere close to being on their level of piling clutter everywhere because iT mIgHt CoMe In UsEfUl LoL, but damn, stuff certainly does build up if you let it.
