Junk

That post is literally (about) junk. I’ve seen it in Vietnam with people of my parents’ generation. Keeping everything. Never throwing anything even though it has not been used for ages, and possibly never will anymore. Pieces of wood, cables, plastic bottles, you name it. Maybe this affects people who endured challenging times. I have lived only in times of plenty and personally prefer to discard, resell or give. The following pictures are from acquaintances who actually have nice and tidy houses. The outside tells another story.

What would Marie Kondo say?

    1. after packing around 50 carton boxes in the last 4 months, I can tell you I appreciate space for itself… not ready to fill up the house again.

      1. Linh did mention that! Do you have well-meaning in-laws wanting to help you “furnish” your home with cast-offs?

  1. Oui les gĂ©nĂ©rations qui ont connu la guerre, les privations, savent que tout peut servir, depanner, et surtout ne coĂ»te rien… C’est lĂ  un jour ça peut servir… Enfant je jouais avec du papier, une ficelle, du fil, une boĂ®te vide d’allumettes, des coques de noix, des os de cou de poulet, des osselets, un bout de bois, les jouets quelques soldats ou animaux Ă©taient pour NoĂ«l, souvent fabriquĂ©s par nos parents… L’imagination faisait le reste… Nous Ă©tions heureux…

    1. je me souviens avec joie des heures passées avec juste dans mes mains un canif et un morceau de bois (et des fois un pansement aussi, peu de temps après).
