Would you believe I have found empty boxes for long-dead coffee makers,
etc. All carefully stored for some unknown reason.
You need to saye the box, in case you need to send it back.
Except my parents didn't send thigns back. If they failed (even if after
a week), I got to fix them. And my father then did battle with the
manugacturer for the spare part.
By the time it finally dies and is no longer going to
go back, you will
have forgotten that you still have the box. If you don't have a system in
place to periodically review what you have stored, it keeps accumulating.
That was the problem...
