I could benefit from a drill sergeant/assistant who could see to the fact that I don't hold onto papers for as long as I do. I don't think I'm a pack rat, I just don't want to blindly throw things away and then realize later, "Oh crap, I needed that."
So then I find myself packing my apartment and thinking, "Oh crap, I still have this."
The drill sergeant could have made me go through these papers/receipts/etc. long ago, you see. Maybe I should train the cat to boss me around in that regard. He already tells me to feed him several times a day.
