I decided to put my scooter away and unpack my game bag for the season. The scooter lives in one of my bedroom closets. In front of it on the floor are two plastic bins and a bag. I realized I had no clue what was in either of the bins or the bag and today was a good day to find out.
The bag, held bags!!! About 5 years ago Seattle outlawed store bags. But, at least 5 to 10 years before that, store bags were known as the Bag Of Shame. I have carried my own bags for at least a decade. This is amazing and depressing news.
I loved store bags and, for years, hoarded them. I saved every one and used them for tash and for storage. It has now taken 10 years to run out! Seriously. But, the bag in the closet held a bunch of old bags!! Yep, plastic and paper with handles. It was a treasure trove!! The End Of Bags has been postponed, at least a little bit.
The top bin had a bunch of dishes in it. When I reorganized the kitchen cupboards last year, these dishes went into the If I Don't Miss Them For A Year Then Goodwill Gets Them. Congrats, Goodwill!!
The second bin, however, held the big bounty...
A couple of weeks ago, I reorganized the closet that holds my clothes. I put the summer ones on the top shelf and the winter ones down where I could easily get to them. What was missing was all the fleece tops I made last year. I figured I gave them away at the end of the winter.
NOPE!!! They were all in that second bin!! FOUND. And now, in their rightful place on the everyday shelves. Whew. JoAnne's is having a big sale on fleece this weekend and I was going to go get some to make new tops. Now I don't have to. Saving a bundle there!
