 How many times have I dumped something that's been occupying space as useless junk for years.......only to need it soon after?

 or....Got one of those somewhere, can't find it, buy another and do the job, then find the missing one as you tidy up!!!

Yes, done that, and I have been walking round looking for a spanner that I have been holding in my hand.  *red*

the worst bit[ for me anyway]is having a tidy up and putting bits safe *roll* if your like me safe turns out to be a 2 hour hunt for the bit *conf2* and finding it in another building altogether  *pull hair out*

Yeah been there and done that and I will probably do it many times more although it will not matter because I will have forgotten.
At least I live in a bungalow now so no more going all the way upstairs and forgetting what for - and then remebering when I get back downstairs  *pull hair out*

not throwing stuff away   - results in you need another shed, building this other shed results in more stuff not to throw away (and an excuse to buy another drill)

I think I may have spotted a universal truth somewhere along the line

I wonder if that's why I've got three sheds !

G'day fellas.
Yes we all need bigger sheds. The older we get the more we accumulate. Having a small shed means I have to be tidy (yeah right) and put things away in their spot. A few years ago I built an overflow shed 7.5 sq/mt that is filling fast.

Hi All,
This just makes me glad that I'm not alone in the world with these problems *ex*
Although I often feel that I could be  *????*

There are things that have gone missing in my sheds that after a complete clean out have not been found *eek*
I blame the leprechauns, they seem especially fond of shiney stuff *problem*

I started with a 20ft container then bought another 40footer. Filled those, so built a "summer house" which also became full so bought a portacabin with three rooms one for lathes miller etc, another for electrics/electronics, and the last for stores. And still 2 containers for the bikes. Bliss for a magpie.
