Boxes and Bags

I have always loved boxes- 
pretty boxes, useful boxes, little boxes, big boxes-
just try to pry them out of my hands.

And bags, oh the pretty ones from nice stores are my undoing.
But things are changing.  
Boxes are being emptied.  Bags are being filled with clothes to give away.
Boxes and bags are leaving this house.

Can you hear Gustavo cheering?

It feels good to let go.
It feels a little hard to let go.  
I send pretty old perfume boxes and shoe boxes to recycling.  
Organizing boxes can organize someone else's stuff.

I bet you didn't know I was a box and bag hoarder.
Here's a confession, as if the previous wasn't bad enough.
I keep makeup box packaging until I use them up.

I know.  

Weirdo.

What's your confession?  Do you keep strange things around your house?

P.S.  Just for fun…Carolina's new car!
