Came across an interesting (though old) Facebook meme today that listed all the things people supposedly don’t keep around today:
I have all five, and I can make a case for all of them …
DVDs: Look, Netflix doesn’t have everything. Maybe you can just rent from Redbox, but why throw something out if you’re just going to want to rent it again? I just re-watched This Is Spinal Tap with the band doing commentary in character. Not sure you can even find that anywhere today.
CDs: OK, this is the least essential today, but there are still a handful of songs you can’t find anywhere online.
File cabinets: Where else would you keep owner’s manuals and tax documents?
Wall calendars: It’s just art today. No, you don’t really need it to know what day it is. (Unless the power goes out.)
Take Out Menus: We have some, but we could probably do without them. The apps and sites are more likely to be up to date. But print menus are easier to browse.
So I have all five. And I’m not that old.
