I know, you just need to replace the socket on that lamp or to get a new shade, so how long have you been telling yourself this? If you’ve moved the lamp to the basement, attic, or garage, do you really plan on fixing that lamp? Did you replace it?
Maybe the lamp isn’t broken, it just doesn’t suit the room or your use any longer. Why not donate the lamp to someone who can use it? You may have had the good intentions to use the lamp in another room or to fix it, but if that hasn’t happened, release it.
If this doesn’t apply to you: Toss three things from a junk drawer.
