Back in May I had identified three things that we absolutely, positively, never need to buy again. I’ve stuck to my guns and no more of these items have been accepted into my home. Obviously making a public declaration works well for controlling these kinds of things.
So, when I had a minor freakout last week and had to clean out certain kitchen cabinets RIGHT NOW, and found MORE items that we absolutely, no really I mean it, I will shoot someone if they bring more into my house, don’t need any more of, I figured another public declaration should be part of the control strategy.
Additions to the collections of the following items are hereby non grata in my home.
Mason jars. We don’t preserve any food. Really.
Balloons. I can barely blow one up anyway, something about breathing test doesn’t look normal, blah blah, steroid inhaler, blah blah… And we have multiple open bags of balloons. I believe there is one balloon missing from each package.
Birthday candles. If you know anyone who is 101 + Buzz Lightyear years old, we’ve got it covered.
