Less being more

We've been sifting and organizing large numbers and volumes of items that we've accumulated over the years.  It's a satisfying process, and it's definitely becoming easier to find things when they're desired. Among other discoveries, we've come across various caches of things that we've collected in a piecemeal fashion, anticipating that they'd be useful or needed sooner or later or when we couldn't find them at an early glance. A representative list of some things that we may never again need to purchase within our lifetimes follows:

Scotch tape
Insect repellents
CD-R media
Paper clips
I'd say batteries, but they expire and leak. 

Looking these over, I see how the need for many of them has diminished along with the use and posting of paper, but it's still nice to be able to do that conveniently and effectively when the occasion calls for it.
