What is our stuff really worth?

However I also see many people overvaluing their belongings. I have a very dear friend who values her "antiques" when in reality only a few are actually saleable, most is just broken old furniture. I hate waste. I wish that the shows would get in someone to value and sell if possible all the things that are being removed from a home. I know that I would have welcomed help of that nature. WE see VALUE in our belongings. We somehow need to get a realistic vision of what we have. Is THIS something that someone would want? Does THAT need to go in the rubbish bin? Too many times people walk into the home of a hoarder and all they see is "STUFF" so in their eyes it becomes JUNK. I have gotten very critical on my own stuff. If it is not something I would buy if I had room to store it, I toss it out. But it hasn't always been that way, for years, I planned to sell this and fix and sell that.Maybe people need to look more carefully AT our belongings, while we also gain 20/20 vision and stop seeing what it CAN be and base our decisions on what it IS now.
