march 2nd is National Old Stuff Day

When you look at your old stuff, what is the first thing that goes through your mind? Do you look to donate them and replace them with newer items? Or, do you cherish the vintage items you have? Whatever you decide to do with your old stuff is up to you, but either way, this is the day to acknowledge it. That is because today is national old stuff day.

March 2nd urges you to look at your old stuff and appreciate the value they hold. Sometimes old stuff is not useful, and you can donate them if you have no use for them or junk them if you feel they are not useful for anyone else. However, plenty of your old stuff is so valuable. Especially if they are old lamps, jewelry, maps, books, and other artifacts, you may even want to keep old clothing for sentimental reasons even if you don’t want to wear it.

Other old stuff you may have would be the first cellphone (remember those large Motorola phones?) or your pager from the 1990s will make you realize how quickly technology evolves. When you look at your current smartphone and compare it to the old cellphone you had from the 1990s, it will be hard to believe that people functioned with those gadgets at one time. Therefore, you will want to keep those items as keepsakes to remind yourself how fast technology grows, and there is just something amazing about that. Therefore, whatever keepsakes you have, on March 2nd, you will want to go through the boxes or cases that they are in and look at them with awe.

History Of National Old Stuff Day

There is always old stuff in every household. However, the history of how this national holiday began is not clear, and it is believed that over time, people grew an appreciation for vintage items. People realize how valuable old items such as old furniture, pictures, and small statues on your shelves, known as tchotchkes in Yiddish and so on, really are. That is the reason that there are people who are collectors of these antiquated items. Besides, if you sell old stuff that holds plenty of value, you can make a lot of money. Either way, a national day had to emerge to celebrate your old stuff because they are worth so much!
