Cleared every last box out of that "spare room": cleaned the room, dusted the boxes......then put them all back in again tho' they do look neater now! To be fair, some of them were boxes full of boxes, which had originally contained new electronic items, and were kept in case said items malfunctioned and had to be returned (although not a legal requirement in the UK to "return item in original packaging" if it should be faulty!) Recycling bin now full of cardboard.
Now all I have to do is go through all of the remaining boxes, one by one and keep on throwing out, shredding, etc. Probably enough to shred for a commercial shredding company!
What to do with a whole load of floppy disks that contain sensitive info? Smash them with a hammer? Who can still run floppy disks anyway?
Even found my husband's old hard disk that was replaced: comfortably cocooned in spongy stuff that the new one came in! Another hammer job?
Wardrobes and chests of drawers have to be done sometime. Not worn it for last 10 years? OUT then! (Or more like, can't fit into it any more, nor ever likely to again!)
