Eggs are pretty much a staple in every fridge. Right? They kind of go along the same lines as milk and bread. Whenever you go to the store, you pick some up. Week after week that carton gets tossed in the recycle bin. Last week I decided to cut the lid off of mine and use the very well spaced "bowls" to paint some Fall acorns. The project still sits on my dining room table just waiting to be completed. However, for once, I'm happy about my procrastination. The more I got to looking at the carton I began to think, "those divider thingies sticking up like little obelisks would be perfect for rings." Ta-da! Just like that I had a new jewelry holder. Check it.
It may not be the prettiest jewelry box, but it sure is convenient. No more mis-matched earrings - Wahoo!
A quick rant - which I have never done on this blog. Ramblings - yes. Rants - not likely.
I wanted to take a minute to talk about two reductions that are quite simply depressing.
#1 explained - When I go to SuperTarget it is generally NOT fun. I have two kiddos with me and it is all I can do to get everything I need and get out of the store before any melt-downs occur. It would be nice if once I finally make it to the check out line the check-out person were pleasant. They don't have to tell me any jokes or ask me about my day - a simple, "hello" or "did you find everything ok?" would make my day. Perhaps a smile, if it's not too much trouble. Seriously? Why is everyone that works at my SuperTarget so rude? It's gotten so bad that today I actually asked one of the girls if they worked them too hard. Her response was, "no. not at all." Then smile for peats sake! You have a job with benefits in a very troubling economy. Smile! Please.
#2 explained - The other night my family and I made a brief stop at CVS to pick up a treat for the boys (long story). I grabbed two movie sized candies for everyone to share. Junior Mints and M&Ms. They were on sale: 2 for $3.00. "Good deal." I thought. That was until I got home and my husband opened the M&M box. Let me just preface this by saying again that it was a movie sized box. What we found inside was a baggie filled with about 50 candies. What? I get more than that with a king sized bag for $1.00. That was the first time EVER that M&Ms, or any candy for that matter, have made me sad.
The conclusion - we need less waste, more courtesy and more candy in this world. Are there any reductions out there that make you sad? Or how about some that make you happy?! Thanks for letting me rant. xo
