March 2: National Old Stuff Day

March 2 is National Old Stuff Day, but there’s plenty of disagreement about what that means.

Option 1: This is the day to stop these responses in their track: “same old stuff,” “nothing new,” “same old same old,” etc. Do something different! Climb a mountain! Take a plane to Timbuktu! Sing a song! Ask someone out! Have orange juice instead of coffee! Wear a grey suit instead of black! 

Hopefully those last few didn’t need exclamation points, but, seriously, National Old Stuff Day is the day to shake things up. (Listen to the Newsies “Sieze the Day” for some inspiration.)

Option 2: Ditch the clutter. It’s old, you don’t use it, it’s simply taking up space. Find your nearest Goodwill, Salvation Army, or local thrift store and drop it off. Chances are someone could use it.

Option 3: Think about what you’ve accomplished this past year. This is the time to think about where you came from and where you are now. If you are a blogger, republish your best stuff.

Option 4: Visit an antique shop. Eat dinner on your great grandmother’s china. Enjoy all the  old stuff around your house (even if that includes yourself!).

Personally, I think all three of these could be great days (although my house would definitely appreciate #2!). How are you celebrating National Old Stuff Day?

“Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

Isaiah 46:4
