Cleaning out the file cabinets.

unclejohn Member Posts: 1,749

Lot of stuff that you accumulate over the years that just ends up in the recycle bin. The recycle guy hates me when I empty out file cabinets.

    I have 14 drawers of file cabinets. Most are almost full.
    Also about 20 linear feet of shelves of manuals and catalogs.
    HW , Robershaw etc from early 80's. Everyone thinks all this info is on line.....but it isn' most think it must be too old to know about.....just replace the complete machine.
    What to do with it??

    I used to save everything had binders and books in my truck. Now you just look it up on line.

    True you may want to have paperwork for the old stuff but a lot of it is gone now

    No shoes but I did find this. How do I do it? Volume.

    Notice you only needed a home improvement license back then in Maryland.
