Leave Cali day 4

The move to Florida, tossing CD cases and software. pdf version
This was the first of many garbage cans I filled with "stuff". Sunnyvale picks up the trash once a week, and my goal was to fill the bin every single week. The goal was to get the house empty by July by moving the contents to the house I inherited in Florida. Then I would live for 6 more months in a studio apartment while the house sold. It gave me more income, which you need with $1,725 apartment rent. This bin has the software boxes and the CD cases. Its cheaper to toss a little every week than go to the dump and pay. I did go to the dump for bigger things like the boxes full of magazines. When you really go through the house looking at every single thing you have to pay a dollar a pound to move, you soon realize a lot of that precious stuff can get sold, or tossed, or given away.

Typical OCD engineer, I kept collecting empty CD cases. They all went into the dumpster.
Not just one box, but a second box tossed.
And old box with click art on floppy disks. The printed preview was nice until Windows could display images in the file explorer. Tossed.

The closet shelf in the music room with junk.
The little alter I built in the music room. This was in an earlier post, and it looks like I still haven't trashed the software binders.
Ahhh the software headed for the Sunnyvale dump, I got to be a regular visitor.

More software boxes headed to the dump, I kept the disks but no need to pay a mover.
I had a chipboard box to the side that held a bunch of books and odds and ends. I kept the Mackie mixer, but have yet to hook it up after 2 years in Florida.

I had two Digital 8 video cameras to shoot 2-camera interviews and such. I used them to transfer all the video files to my Synology NAS (network attached storage). I gave the cameras away to a video buff pal, and gave a big box of tapes to a pal that does tape backups for his consulting business,

The two red binders were music lyrics and notes that I scanned into the computer so I could toss the binders.
