I could totally be a hoarder.
That’s my secret.
Well, I guess its not really a secret…especially to my husband. He has seen firsthand the crazy that I can become when confronted with the prospect of getting rid of things. I have seriously called him at work on garbage and recycling pick up day, livid that he has thrown away a cardboard diaper box without asking me first. I will rant about how I could have used that box, and how it would be ridiculous to have to go buy a cardboard box if I ever needed one, and how there is plenty of room up in the attic to hold a nice little stockpile of cardboard justincase.
“Just in case what?” is often his reply.
I don’t know why I hate throwing away cardboard boxes. Maybe its because I hate that our city doesn’t recycle them. Maybe its because I fantasize about all of the craft projects I could do with them. Maybe I’m just cheap. Or crazy. Or cheap and crazy.
But Office Depot totally gets me. They want to feed my addiction to hoarding cardboard.
See, I ordered this printer at Office Depot. It was a printer I had been watching for a while, and with the sale price and a coupon code, it was more than half off. Plus, if your order totaled $50 or more, you got free next day shipping. However, my order, after the coupon, was $49 and change. So I ordered an eraser, too.
I guess Office Depot is not allowed to just tape the eraser to the outside of the printer box.
Office Depot, you have my heart. Thanks for the lovely, perfectly-sized box. Now excuse me while I go hide it before my evil husband tries to throw it away.
