So it's come to this. You rip off (or not) the rings gathering your measuring cups and spoons. Next you're going to tell us that you've gone ahead and ripped off those tags on your pillows and mattresses.

I fully expect to hear next about the joys of the blue box of macaroni.

Oh, muddy, my dear! You know none of us self-respecting, law-abiding DCers would ever do that. Don't you know the mattress police will surely come and clap us in irons?

P.S. Buck and I used to live in a suburban Washington, D.C. neighborhood that had the housing Nazis, too. Oh, pew!

I figured you would know what I was talking about, Katie. In fact, the most recent egregious example was over in your former neck of the woods (the People's Republic of MD), where the house Nazis dictated what kind of Christmas lights the neighbors could display (and no, it was not those big colored "A Christmas Story" kind of lights).

Andy,
The only question that truly matters in life is how do you do the toilet paper? Over the top, or down the back?

There is a right answer.

Buck, you may as well go get a nice big book and head over to the naughty corner right now.

Apologies, Katie, but maybe I should join Buck in the naughty corner. There is a right answer (over).

And it has to be two-ply.

Like most of you guys, I have accumulated several sets of measuring cups and spoons. There is one complete set of measuring cups in my cupboard and a glass jar container one complete set of measuring spoons plus odds and ends of spoon sets.
I have a 1 cup measuring cup in each the flour, sugar, oatmeal and rice containers. Then the 1/2 cup measuring cups in other things like cornmeal, brown sugar... etc. I find this so convenient. Some of my small measuring spoons 1/8 & 1/4 tsp are in the dry spice containers.
The only cups that I have to fetch are the 1/3, 2/3, 3/4 cups on occasion for these dry ingredients. (I never measure veggies & such in a measuring cup....they don't fit. They need to be used as one med. or weighed....2 lbs green beans....for example)
As for the Rings. who wants to wash a whole set because you measured with one?
If I had to take a set to be used somewhere else, I would mount them on a car key ring where they would not fall off. (actually I'd probably just buy another set and what comes home would wind up in the incomplete misc container)
If I decide to recycle a container to store in, I measure liquid &/or dry to see how much it actually holds.
