Stuff is probably the one thing we all have in common.
The Stuff starts to accumulate when you decide to move out of your
parent’s home, and into your own apartment. Now that you have your own space,
the first thing you need to do is to fill it with your own stuff.
You decide what kind of stuff you want.

decide, right up front, what stuff will be displayed and what stuff will be put in

There may come a time when you get bored with your stuff, and want new stuff.
You can give your old stuff to family or friends, who like your stuff, or
donate to the Goodwill, or the Salvation Army – they like stuff too. And while

Boxed-up and stored in closets or under your bed. That my friends, is just the
nature of stuff.
