The Closet ... Part 2

Okay, so when I was cleaning out The Closet, I brought in a notebook and made a huge list of all the weird shit I found in there. And then I set it aside for blogging purposes (OBVIOUSLY) and then totally forgot about it when I blogged my photos yesterday.

SO. Without further ado. THIS is what I found in The Closet.

-Matt's social security card
-Matt's pipe and pipe kit (yes, Matt is an 80 y/o man who enjoys smoking a pipe)
-Various valentines from Matt's nieces/nephews over the years
-Movie ticket stubs dating back to 2005 (these were Matt's)
-A combination to a lock - lock whereabouts unknown
-Lease information from when Matt lived in the barracks when he moved to DC ... circa 2005
-An envelope labelled "wedding gift cards" that did, indeed, have a few leftover wedding gift cards - with money! - inside
-Wedding magazines (I have been married for almost 2 years now)
-A bullet
-Ticket to the 2004 University of Michigan Commencement Ceremony (i.e. my college graduation)
-Menu for the sushi restaurant Matt and I had our first date at and, two years later, got engaged at
-Recipe for eggnog, hand written by Matt
-My birth certificate
-Every paper I wrote in grad school
-13 Bed Bath and Beyond coupons
-Grant proposal I wrote in grad school to add a college counseling curriculum to the subsidized housing development I worked at (hmmm foreshadowing?)
-An entire duffle bag of clothes that never got unpacked from when we moved here ... in September 2008. Hey, I was wondering where that stuff was!

So, there you have it. Have you ever found some weird stuff in a close YOU have cleaned out? Do share ... it got to the point where I just had to laugh!

I'm glad others find random bullets in their home.

I've found random gift cards that were gifted to us when we were married, and found that they were still good. It was awesome. And I have an entire file folder filled with papers that I wrote in high school... 10 years ago! I finally threw it out when we made the move to New Zealand :-)

I was going through a filing cabinet before we moved that Matt had in college. I also found a pipe in there as well as a pipe cleaning kit! Did you know that pipe cleaners actually are used to clean pipes? I did NOT know that! I thought you just used them for arts and crafts :)

I hope those gift cards still are good. How awesome would that be?! I am a pack rat, so when I clean, I find stuff that is easily years old. Last time I cleaned out our closet, I found newspaper clippings from when I was in high school- 10 years ago!
