Fun & games time here on DKos (Boy, do we need it!)

GW (Gulf Watchers) Block parties are a spot for hilarity, music, recipes, drinks, etc.....no topic is off limits...come on in and join us.

Tonites edition is about; STUFF---and about having too much!!!

Recently, another GW & I were having a discussion about having "too much stuff"---mostly junk!  We agreed we are likely both "pack-rats".

Fortunately, I'm now on the other side of that problem, having just moved from a large house; into a smaller apartment; and now into an even smaller  (final) apartment.  
Well, it was a real challenge to downsize---not so much furniture, etc. but tons of JUNK....good junk, but junk none the less.

For, instance: how many pictures can one hang on 4 walls?   Certainly not 100+
these are just some of the extras...

Yup; had 3 of those kind....a wonder I ever found anything....

You get the picture....books are a real problem....Bet any & all of you have at least 40-50 books----just lying there; and now you are reading Kindle.  
I had to get rid of over 100.....killed me though----hard to do.

Clothes?   Still keeping that shirt or dress from 1972 party?   Huh, huh???
Or, do you like having 32 polo shirts-----I had to cut to just 20. (TWENTY?  yikes)

I still have two boxes of postcards---many vintage---WTF am I going to do with now?
No room to frame them & enjoy them that way.......

And, don't forget to bring some goodies to eat while visiting.....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
