(Belated) Spring Cleaning

Posted by Non-Hamster on June 27th, 2009

Well it's that time of year again, the dreaded "Spring Cleaning".  Ok, it's actually well past spring, so I'm a procrastinator when it comes to that sort of thing.  I am not a hamster, I know it's really got to be done, that task of clearing out all the crap that tends to pile up during the previous summer, fall, and most especially winter when nobody really wants to spend a bunch of time outside loading this crap into the car/truck/van/whatever and hauling it away.

As I got started on this year's clean out I'm once again amazed at some of the things that needed to be gotten rid of.  WalMart bags.. You know, those plastic grocery sacks that wally world is famous for?  well I've got this bad habit of keeping them because I figure I'll need 'em for something which can be anything from padding when wrapping gifts to hauling away the nasty when cleaning out the cat's litter box and plenty more.

Thing is, no matter how many of them I use (and I do so freely) I never seem to run out of them.  In fact, I usually accumulate them faster than I use them.  Just this week I got rid of a 30 gallon trash bag full of the things and I could easily do it again.

Then there's old appliances.  There's an old microwave oven (works fine but it's almost 13 years old and the housing is rusting out), no less than four old coffee makers that have died on me in the last year or two, a couple of toasters and an almost unbelievable supply of empty boxes that have been collected every Christmas after packages were opened.  The original idea was to re-use them for birthdays and the next Christmas.  The problem is that like the trash bags, no matter how many get used, there's always more than I started with.  Go figure.
