I thought the best way to start a new life is to 1) move to a different country, 2) start a new job and 3) throw all your belongings into a friend's shed and forget about them – which worked perfectly until friend needed the shed and we were faced with a massive amount of old stuff… What did I need 20 yoga mats for? And did I really develop films in this little black box? And, oh look, pictures of happy days in Australia! I haven't missed any of these things in the last 8 years, but can't bring myself to throw them away either.
After all this schlepping I feel the urgent need for a new pair of shoes. Ideally Camilla Skovgaard's dinosaur soles – but they're a bit out of my financial league; which is why I ordered 3 pairs at Yoox. (1 to keep, 2 to return – something that never works out.)
How do you deal with old things – keep, give away, storage, ebay...?
