Mark Morford on de-cluttering (and the SF reuse culture) | 43 Folders

Here’s a shoutout to what KC and I used to call the “ghetto mall” when I lived in the Mission District in SF. As you walked down the streets there, people line the streets with blankets covered with assortments of old stuff. I got half my books that way. I’ve always had a theory that many homeless are more literate than the average person because books are some of the only entertainment they can afford. With no electricity, very little money, and lots of time, books are probably the best way to entertain yourself, I imagine.
