Have finally started closing out the locker. I don't have a lot that is worth money, but I do have a lot of it! For example, CDs I have at least 4 packing tubs of CDs that I have accumulated over the years. Each of the big tubs holds about 150-200, and the small ones about 50. And I have not found all of the tubs with CDs yet. So I have something in the order of 400-600 CDs! That number can vary, depending on how well the tub was packed! Although they represent a large investment of money to buy them, today, the monitory worth is very little. Most places sell used CDs for $1-$3, and realistically, most CDs never get sold. So my collection is worth as much as $200-$300. On the other hand, it is a huge wealth of music and spoken word! There are hundreds and hundreds of hours of listening sitting in packing tubs, waiting to be heard again!
The same is true of the tubs full of books...and the old computer parts...well, there might be *some* value in recycling most of them...but realistically, they are just accumulations of junk, no matter how many thousands of dollars they were worth originally.
In many ways, that is the story of my life, Music, Books and Computers.
