What is end-of-life like for a pack rat? Exhausting? Humbling? Regretful? Embarrassing? Or what an awesome time to be a blessing by giving away what has grown strangely dim?
What if you are a pack rat’s family/friend and will be responsible for taking care of all that stuff that some one had to leave behind?
If it is valuable to the receiver, WHAT A GIFT! But what if it is 5 square yards of styrophome packaging plates piled high against a wall? Surely “caring for the plates” would be a burden, but it could also be one great story to tell some day!
I am sure when I die there will be tons to throw away, but they all had a purpose…while I was alive. Whoever will close up my (your) estate, I say thank you! You are my heros.
