For tonight’s museum post we have a Fujitsu ScanSnap carrier sheet. It’s a plastic sleeve that came with a document scanner we bought back in 2010. I had used this type of scanner at work and loved being able to feed in a stack of paper. Because the scanner was so good at scanning stacks of paper, we hardly ever used it to scan anything else. As a result, this carrier sheet has been mostly unused.
I’m kind of struggling now to figure out what to do with all the stuff I have. At times, I feel like how I felt during Moving 2012 and want to get rid of everything. Other times, I feel a sentimental attachment to objects that I haven’t used in years. After returning from Hong Kong, there were times when I felt like I shouldn’t have gone on that rampage getting rid of so many things.
For the carrier sheet, I ask myself that same question that I asked four years ago: when was the last time you used it? How many times have you used it in the past year? Unless there is some extreme sentimental value in an object, the answers to those questions should make it pretty clear whether to keep or dump something.
Don’t remember, and zero. I’ve already placed it in the recycle bin. Hope you’ve enjoyed this museum post. 🙂
