1-> Wives in general don't take well all the stuff husbands stores, classified as just "trash" but they don't know from where comes all the stuff we use to repair stuff ! I think they will never understand the logic :p
2-> If you keep a thing for 10 years, even a insignificant piece of stuff, and throw away some day, you will need that piece of thing in the next week.
3-> Of course we cannot keep all the parts we want to keep ? there's just no space for everything.
A few months ago, near a garbage bin at a Elementary Public School, I pick-up this metal storage.
If you subdivided those drawers, you could have one heckuva parts storage cabinet
Oh.. yeah... I already started to fill up with stuffs like... Motors, Step-motors, heatsink, Ardiuno Sheild + DIY ( I include a big pink anti-static foam ) , Arduino boards with a anti-static foam, Battery holder, transformers, speakers, LCD display with a pink anti-static foam, big variable capacitors.... Rooms for more... XDThank for you comment... That one advantage when you drive a mini school bus, you do see "garbage" along the way...
