I have a bag full of bags. I mean a big, honking, gigantic bag of bags. It’s so huge that I was too embarrassed to take a picture of it for this post. Let’s describe it as a bag large enough to put your autumn leaves in. And it’s full of tote bags.
I’m trying to do one better than Just Say No to a bag at the grocery store, or bring my own when I go shopping. I’m trying to give one away everywhere I go. And listen, they’re nice bags, too! And at this point, they span the centuries (that is, back into the 1990s). Events, gifts, conventions – I’ve got a thing for bags and I can’t let go. But I am vowing to myself to change my selfish ways, and give a bag away wherever I go. So if I’m coming to your house for dinner, or taking a meeting with you, or bringing you a birthday gift, expect it to come with a nice canvas tote bag. Or if not nice, “vintage.”
I intend to leave it behind, so don’t try to give it back. I’m in hoarding recovery — so please be kind and help turn my problem into a green solution. I’m eight down, with about 150 to go.
Help a hoarder.
