De-cluttering in St. Paul


 Making resolutions for the new year is easy but sticking with them isn’t so easy.  Again this year one of my resolutions was to get rid of stuff that I don’t need.  I have been making at least one trip a week to the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store on West 7th street and have been dropping off a few items each time.

This week in addition to some coffee mugs and kitchen utensils I dropped off a bunch of ethernet cables, a hundred miles of phone cable and a grip of USB cables.   They will be sold for twenty five cents each.  

I took the picture before I found several more cables but you get the idea.  Some were in the original  wrapper because every time I buy a new USB device a cable is included.  I am not sure where all the phone cable came from.  I saved one ethernet cable and a phone cable just in case and I still have more USB cables than USB ports even though I have a seven port hub.

One of the disadvantages of having a home office is that it is super easy to accumulate stuff.
