My office was once a bedroom, although not in the 18 years I've lived in this house. Therefore it has a pretty good sized closet. Not long after we moved in, I had shelves installed, since I had no intention of hanging clothes or storing shoes in it.
I have a lot of boxes in there (mostly shoe sized), and all of them are neatly labeled--otherwise I'd forget what's inside. I have boxes of my books, boxes of stationery (I seem to collect note cards), and office supplies, and what not. And I have a large, clear-plastic tub of craft supplies.
The odd thing is ... I don't do crafts.
I always think that one day I will find the time (and talent) to fix things. To create things fun things out of bits and bobs. It isn't going to happen, but I like to think that one day it might.
Have you got a box of stuff that pleases you but has no real value?
