Is anything you own 'on its way out'?

Still usable, but getting so broken that it is one step to the heap.

Many (possibly most) of my clothes, including the summer coat that I've had for about 20 years
My settees - they'll go to the dump/Freecycle next time I move house
My stick blender which has a horrid electrical smell every time I use it

Many things, off the top of my head: an old drill with a frayed cord, a chair I used to sit in and loved but the armrest started falling apart (I wrapped it with something then we moved it to a corner a few years ago and rarely use it, but still have it), cat condo (just started taking off the smelly top to replace that with something maybe), old slipper/shoes, old TiVOs, old computers that I should recycle (but that's tricky), wife's iPad has flaky wifi after many years, I have an old android tablet with a similar issue that I use for app development, a wheelbarrow that kept getting a flat tire. probably should have replaced the whole thing but I got a new tire for it that turned out to be too-big so I dented the barrow part to allow the tire to spin freely; still using it but it's not pretty. I could go on and on... I tend to like old things and feel wary of new things (which seem to often be not quite right or cost a lot, etc.)

Some clothes in my closets on the way to the thrift store

A lot of things...my shower and shower head are in terrible shape...my bathtub and sink are both blocked...my computer is horrifically slow...my glasses have been patched up multitudinous times...there's a broken drain outside my door...my curtains are a pair of old sheets...my vacuum cleaner is full...my energy levels are at barely functional...

Yes, but I hang on to it, till its demise. I presently have a washer and dryer, that is at least 15 years old. They still work, with a few quirks. I have new refrigerators, they will be here a while. I have a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis car, and love it. They don't make them anymore, but will keep it until its end.

My family calls me a tighwad in many ways, but why throw away something that has always been there for you? I have many things that are on the way out, but won't throw out, from little to big size..

I don't think so. We've replaced a lot of things in the house lately. Our car is old and has had some problems, but it seems to be running fine right now.

Yeah, my weed whipper.

My DeWalt cordless hammer drill. Smokes when I use it usually.

The Indiglo light up on my watch stopped working, so I ordered a new watch.

Couch. So what that it is threadbare and looks like it has been around since the dark ages (close but not quite), it is soooo comfy.
