My mother saved glass jars and plastic tubs that food came in, as well as newspapers (I have no idea why she saved the newspapers. Maybe she thought you could still get money for it at the recycler.). I have hauled so much of that crap out of her apartments.

I find it a lot easier to get that stuff out of the house right away, now that we have recycling pickup.

You are like my Sister, she does not tolerate clutter.

I think because I'm the youngest I got used to getting all of the hand me downs and broken toys.

I equate clutter with coziness and security, boy is this place cozy!

Well, as I opened up the box of angel hair pasta and went to dump it into the boiling water, I did not realize the BOTTOM of the box was already open! So angel hair pasta went all over the floor and mixed with Beagle hair. Then it went into the trash. Luckily I still had another partial box of pasta so we didn't go hungry.

Spike did that the other day when he was putting away my groceries. I left it there for The Pirate to pick up. I told him it was my way of letting him know how much I appreciate all he does for me. One more job he does so well. He bought it with rolling eyes!

I tried to have that problem, but just didn't have the room, so I finally learned to use the trash can. Yep, I'd find a use for that box or bubble wrap within a day or so, but I'd have to just go out and get some. PITA? Yes!, but it keeps my apartment clutter free and I do love to shop, so I get to do one of my favorite things (shop) and still keep my apartment from becoming a hoarder's nightmare. LOL

Don't tolerate clutter.

Oh no, that's not me at all. I have to edit all the photos I post to keep from posting pix of the clutter. I don't always succeed.

It's just that it's not as hard to recycle something that might be useful as it is to throw it in the garbage.

That's what it is about clutter, Taxy. Either you can tolerate it, or you can't. Me, I just can't.

It's a useful trait when I want to get a sewing job done, or a crochet project. If it's within eyesight, I will keep working on it until I can get it done and out of sight, or withstand the irritation of seeing it cluttering up my visual landscape.

For you. And your DH. And all other lovers of popping bubble wrap. Warning: addictive! BUT ecologically proper.

Virtual Bubble Wrap

Be sure to turn the volume up for full effect!
