Pareto's Law

I need to move house again. During packing, I found out there are quite a lot of stuff that I didn't even manage to unpack from my previous move: 2 pairs of jeans, a few shirts, a stack of unused notebooks (the good old dead-tree ones), and some blank CDs.

This again confirms the Pareto's Law: In 80% of my time, I only use 20% of my stuff. In other words, more than 50% of my things can be thrown away, or better still, need not be bought at the first place.

Late in February I threw away a part of myself after 9 years, well, not exactly the physical self, but more on the memories. I don't see how the relationship is going, I just buried it somewhere, and left.
