For example, an electric generator that's sitting in the basement unused for several years, but that may come in very handy if there's a power outage a few months from now. Other aspects to consider besides how often you've used it are: How much space does it take to store it? How valuable is it? How likely are you to use it in the future? And especially, how easy would it be to replace it?
I've gotten rid of a lot of information on paper figuring that now that sort of thing can easily be found on the Internet. Things with sentimental value can be irreplaceable, though.
