I have such a hard time throwing away boxes and containers, especially if they're cute in any way. Although that is not a prerequisite. I currently have four medium sized moving boxes in my office that I just can't get rid of because the boys used them one day for playing robot men and now every time I see them I think what if they want to play with them again and I've thoughtlessly thrown them away!!
And then there are the dozen or so plastic, paper, metal or wooden boxes that I have acquired. They are old food containers (mostly cute cookie or sweets) or gift containers that I can't stand to let go of. What if I can reuse them somehow?
And then there are the bags...OH THE BAGS! I will keep practically any bag that enters my house. What's more useful than a bag? And they come in all varieties, plastic, paper, cotton, big, small, medium, from stores, from friends, free gifts, left behind...it doesn't matter how it ends up in my hands, once it's here it sets up its home and never leaves!
But I've been thinking these days, maybe I should clean house and let go of some of that stuff. What do you think?
