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.
