Would you remember you stored them here?
I packed up the huge DR wall unit bcs we have to move it to allow construction inside the walls (pipe issues from the apt bldg). And am discovering all sorts of things.
One thing I found in the bottom drawer where I keep hats, mittens, and gloves is the hood to my DD's outgrown winter coat.
I have the coat in the closet still bcs I was trying to find that hood, so that when I donated it, it was all together. I *knew* the hood was somewhere, I knew I'd set it aside when DD decided she didn't want it on the coat anymore (she and I both hate fur trim with a fiery passion). But I couldn't find it.
The experience reminded me that I need to be really careful where I store stuff, so that I'm putting it somewhere that would actually occur to me when I was looking for it.
I've had that strategy -work- before; I couldn't find the charger to the electr. screwdriver and said, "If I were smart, I'd have labeled it this way and put it in this drawer, in this spot right here--oh wait, there it is, labeled and everything!"
But this time it didn't work.
I've also sometimes said, "Maybe you shouldn't bother to keep this. Because when the time comes that you might want it, will you even remember where you stored it?
Has either of these things happened to you? Got any advice or wisdom to share?
