Old Stuff Day
About Old Stuff Day
When is Old Stuff Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 2
When asking someone “What’s new?” or “What’s happening?”, how often do you hear “Nothing really, same old stuff”? Well, today, is Old Stuff Day, in recognition of this all-too-common response. It is suggestive of a boring period, or a boring lifestyle…. how sad. So, this March 2 holiday was created to encourage you to get out of the dull old routine and do something uniquely different for you.
Old Stuff Day is not a day to do the same old stuff. Rather, it’s a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine and make some exciting changes. Find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies. Attend an event. Do something, anything, different. You will be glad that you did!
We recently performed additional research on this day. We found some people have modified the intent of this day and now celebrate it as an opportunity to clean out the “old stuff” in our homes and garages. That leaves room for new stuff. Some people also suggest we find ways to reuse the old stuff we have stashed away, rather than committing it to the waste stream. Some of the old stuff in our closets make great material for art projects. We see no problem in widening the goals of this holiday. It makes Old Stuff Day more fun and meaningful.
How to Celebrate Old Stuff Day
Here are some suggestions on how to participate in this holiday:
- Following the original objective of this day, do something different, something exciting and challenging.
- Clean out your closet or basement.
- Have a garage sale. All old stuff must go.
- Donate things you no longer need or use.
- If you are artistically skilled, make an art project out of some of your old stuff.
