- went through an old file folder and threw most of it out (they were mostly old bills and receipts from 1998 to 2001!)
- put away the Christmas decorations and the tree (with hubby's help)
- went through one of the boxes from the basement which was mostly junk
My husband checked the box I had gone through, and would you believe he salvaged an old plastic tube which would have been turned into a beverage bottle? He got it when he was on-site visiting a customer several years ago. This has been hidden away in a cardboard box gathering dust in the basement for years, yet deemed salvage-worthy, but he asked me if I wanted to keep my old governor general's medal that I got in high school.
Now I'm thinking, really? I am willing to let go of something that is given to a student as a high honor, but you refuse to get rid of an old plastic tube? LOL! And, after more thinking, I've decided to keep my medal, thank you very much.
What about you? Do you have a hard time letting go of things from your past, or does your spouse sometimes hold onto things that just make you scratch your head? Please share! I'm all ears.
