Use It or WASTE It

December 27th, 2009 at 11:50 am

I'm a sticker freak. When I write letters, I smother, splatter and strangle them with stickers. I'm a sticker connoseiur.

But I ran out of stickers. And I didn't have the money for more. Well, I decided NOT to spend the money on more.

Instead I decided to strictly use what I already have. I have markers, pencils, color pencils, stencils, glue, misc gluable things, scrapbook paper. I decided that instead of buying stickers I'm going to use what I already have. Sticker industry, I'm on strike! (Nothing personal).

Ok, so it won't save me a lot of money in the long run. Most stickers around here (FL) cost anywhere from $0.99 to $2.99 and up for the expensive fancy stuff.

It saves me from buying the unnecassry and afterwards it's fresh to start over once I really have used everything up. I've had these pencils and markers and pens for YEARS now. It's time to use them.

Also with my beloved stickers to provide the pretty prety colors and pretty pictures, I'm forced to be more creative. (Or, in more recent cases, just to deviantart.com for ideas.)

And I've decided to this with everything. My papers, food, body lotions (thanks to my friends over the years, I have a 4 year supply at least), and tons more.

Saved me from buying more crap and wasting money!

USE it or WASTE it.

    I find myself doing this a lot with food lately. I often find I can make a whole week's lunches for work out of what is already in my cupboards. Sometimes I have to buy an essential ingredient, like chicken or beef to make soup with. Another option would be if you have a lot of stuff that's still good but you don't like it, get some friends together and have a swapping party swapping lotions, shampoos, perfumes, and whatever else there is. We trade stuff of ours that we don't need to folks on freecycle or donate it to Goodwill.

    crazy: that's a good idea.
