Tra-La! It’s a soda cup! At our last Family and Consumer Science Club meeting I was offered Coke from a 2-Liter bottle, which is the thriftiest way to drink soda, if you’re interested. I love me some free coke! A quick rinse of my almond-snack container, and I was good to go. This kept my dixie cup free for puppy chow. (or muddy buddies? This could be a regional term.)
What is the non-regional term for the peanut butter, chocolate, and powdered sugar- covered Chex cereal?
Just curious, speaking of regional terms, if anyone knows what a Sloppy Joe is? When my parents moved to Iowa they couldn’t figure out what a “Maidrite” was on my sister’s school lunch menu. When she got home they grilled her and discovered that a “Maidrite” and “Sloppy Joe” are one in the same. Also, not everyone knows that “Pit Stick” is “Deodorant.” I was an eighth grader when I figured this out. In the gym locker room. Embarrassed, for sure.
Anyways, about that yogurt cup. Today The Non-Consumer Advocate did a post about Hoarders, the new TV show. I haven’t seen it before but apparently people have so much junk in their home that it’s not safe for them to even live there. Some people think my yogurt-cup obsession is a little weird. I can tell you that I am NOT organized, but I am far from hoarding.
Sometimes I wonder if frugal-ness is linked to hoarding? Most of my craft projects growing up had to do with whatever fabric my mom didn’t need, or refashioning my old clothes. Now I can’t seem to let go of clothes because I think how I could re-use or re-fashion something. Given, going without mainstream craft supplies has made me pretty creative, (Re-purposed yarn? Plastic bag totes, anyone?) I wonder if I’m a little too sentimental over my craft supplies?
Or is it normal to have sentimental feelings for STUFF?
Please comment, I’d love to know if I’m crazy or just a little eccentric.
