Paper towels, toilet paper, WD40, printer paper, air-in-a-can (air duster), new jackets, new shoes, new vitamins, new window cleaner, newer laptop, magazines of interest (No, not that kind!), new tripod, new digital camera (new to me).

I think you get the idea...chime in.  ;D

Guess I'm the only one who keeps ordinary daily needs items (let alone great electronics items).

I have a friend who says the only thing he ever buys in a store, is underwear, toilet paper and food; everything else comes in lockers !  (may be an exaggeration, but a lot of good stuff can be used for yourself). Today I got two un-opened boxes of dishwashing detergent.

I just got a nice Ralph Lauren shirt in my size the other day.  I also got a case of Costco Kirkland brand toilet paper.   I get tons of detergent, softener, furniture polish, carpet cleaners, car waxes, etc.  One of the lockers I bought last Wednesday has a nice dark wood 8 drawer dresser and queen size bed combo that is going in my bedroom this week.  My wife saw it and said she'd kick me in the butt if I sold it!  Not long ago, got a nice stainless steel gas BBQ that I'm keeping.  Get artwork all the time.  Got a couple of LCD tv's in my house that came from storage units.  Tons of little hand tools and fasteners (screws, nails, glue, etc.) and all kinds of towels that I usually save for rags.  Plastic clothes hangers......buy enough units and you'll never need to buy another hanger again!

I actually haven't found many useful household items I'd hold onto.  That said I do keep at least one item from each unit that is unique to that unit.  Coin collection, old wooden cigar box, money clip, poker chips, etc.

I got first aid kit stuff, paper towels, TP, cologne, a few tools I decided to keep, garbage bags, and some toys I kept for upcoming Bday and Xmas for the kids. Hell I even got a new box of 6 locks with keys.

My wife loves to keep the household cleaners and anything else that she can use with out going to the store to purchase.

And there's lots of stuff like that, and of course "man" things like motor oil, tools, guns, vehicles, just about anything you can imagine. If you stick around long enough you'll see something you want for yourself.

I have neighbors who can't belief the variety of goods I get, but when you think about it, they are households just like ours, richer or poorer with lots of stuff we can use. I can't imagine the money I've saved on such thing...laundry soap, dishwashing detergent, the list goes on and on.

LOL Movieman my wife is always seeing something that she thinks I should keep and 9 times out 10 I'll look at it and say yeah I think I will. Then when push comes to shove I'll sell it for the right price to one of my buddies that wants it. However you are correct about oil, select tools, a gun would be a no brainer.
