Making the most of our resources is important, I have been challenged this week by the amount of stuff we accumulate, I'd love to live a simpler lifestyle, it would be good for me, and for the environment I think...With that in mind I bring you this Friday 5:
1. Are you a hoarder or a minimalist?
Yes. I mean to be a minimalist, anyway. But I have the de rigeur book fetish, and so I always move more boxes of books than anything else. Until I got married, it was more boxes of books than all other boxes combined. But I have my scrapbooking supplies, and my pottery collection, and my Noah's Ark collection, and my camera...
2. Name one important object ( could be an heirloom) that you will never part with.
Probably my phone. No, sometimes I'd like to pitch it out the window. I don't think I have just one thing, but excluding Ben and the critters, if I could only save one thing it would be my eyeglasses. Mundane, I know, but I can't see much of anything without them, so the computer, and the scrapbooks, and the crochet projects, and the collectibles, and the books would all be pretty much useless without them.
3. What is the oldest item in your closet? Does it still fit???
Right now I think the oldest thing is a pair of jeans...and no, they don't, they're too big! ;-)
4.Yard sales- love 'em or hate 'em ?
Hate to hold 'em, love to browse them.
5. Name a recycling habit you really want to get into.
If I didn't have a WonderMutt I'd compost & garden for sure...meanwhile, I am loving FreeCycle and Craigslist.
And for a bonus- well anything you want to add....
Did I mention the office supply fetish? I don't so much want to organize as I want to be surrounded by lovely organize-y things. I didn't mention it? Good. Forget I
