I Can’t Throw Them Away

Honey Bottles

What is my problem? I can’t throw things away! Those cute plastic bottles that honey comes in? I have twenty-seven! After my next batch of granola bars, it’ll be 28! And a good jar with a lid that screws on tight? I can’t throw them away! I need a bigger kitchen.

It’s not just my kitchen items. This is much bigger than that. I have wrapping paper from 1985; Rubber bands spilling out of a shoe box; Pieces of fabric from dresses I sewed in the 70s; Did you know old socks make good cleaning rags? I digress. I also have: Cookbooks that use ingredients they don’t even make any more; Keys that don’t open anything… but you never know; Plastic forks from my 40th birthday party; Enough pieces of string for any possible things that need to be tied up… until I die.

Am I the only one?

    Use your sweet bear jars for granola gifts! Give them away. Fill them with the making for cookies and give them away….
    Make simple syrup and reuse for moistening your cake.
    Fill them with sand and use them as a door stop….
    Fill with dish soap and get a smile each time you do the dishes.
    You have a lot… more than me! That is truly amazing! 🙂

    I am just like you.I have magazines called spree which has beautiful recipes and things to do, like sewing, crafts, etc. I just love cook books.and just books, material and other things, I am trying to clean out my closets, by giving away some of my books and other things to change charity.

    Those bear honey jars would make an adorable light string, perhaps using clear Christmas lights. You’d probably have to cut out the bottom to let the heat out. How awesome a bear light string would look in your kitchen!

    Miss your recipe videos. Hope you can come back soon!
