I'm cheap. There I said it. Over the weekend I got taught a lesson about being too cheap. I will be investing in the following soon.
Our humble little home is a 1950's ranch. Back in the 50's they did not believe in large closets. Therefore, I switch out my summer/winter clothes and USED to store them in trash bags - they were cheap and I could reuse them! I've been using trash bags for years to store off season clothing. Well last weekend I learned an important lesson. I went to the storage slash laundry room to retrieve my summer clothes. I looked where I put the bag last fall and all that was there was some cardboard. I looked high, low and in between. No luck. Hmmm, why was there cardboard back there?
We purchased a new washing and dryer back in November, Mr. Manly Man tends to keep stuff like cardboard and apparently throws out my summer clothing just because it's in a trash bag. Yep - he tossed it out back in November.
So I guess this weekend I invest in a couple good storage containers and a black Sharpie. Oh maybe a few spring shirts too!
I also don't feel so bad about outing him on the bird cage.
