Have you ever kept something you know isn't in great shape and you know you should get rid of it but just haven't yet?
One of mine:
This stool got damaged either in storage or, more likely, on it's way to/from storage. It's no longer safe to stand on. I've been using it next to the raised kitty box but had to move it every night when I took down the baby gate in the hall and the dog had access to the bathroom where the kitty box is kept. A quick rearrangement, closing one bathroom door and putting the baby gate on the outside of the other and the stool is no longer needed. Out it goes!
