The Price of Paper

$306.13 to be a person who still has Paper. $120 to hire two delightfully apathetic yet lovely and helpful hipsters and their Van to rescue all of your books, college papers, poems and pictures and scrapbooks, your Grandma’s mink coat and that nice crockpot your mom got you for Christmas from storage; $176.13 to ship these things to yourself across the country. (Give the years old video camera, camera camera, old flip phones and printer to Goodwill, because maybe some one still wants those things?) Shockingly not that pricey for clinging to a papery way of life that I refuse to let go away; least not in my lifetime.
