Repeat After Me

There is nothing wrong with buying things just for the packaging or the container.

I do this all the time (less in recent days, but nonetheless...). I saw cookies that came in a Forever Friends tin for $5.00. It's one of those 8" round cookie tins. You can't get a container that size, alone, with an Andrew Brownsword image on it for less than $10.00. The same goes for Hello Kitty and other Sanrio character packaging.

The way I see it, I'm getting a very cool cookie tin and it's an added bonus that there's some kind of food stuff in it.

The Husband hates it when I do this. I'm waiting for the day he needs a nice container for a gift. Then, I'll tell him in a quiet, Sally Forth tone: "I don't want to hear another word about me buying things just for the container".

What an interesting philosophy. On the other hand, I keep trying to stop people from packaging everything to death. For instance, last week I went grocery shopping. The nice man bagging my groceries put my milk in a bag. It comes with a handle!

I used to use brown paper grocery bags to wrap up new textbooks so they wouldn't get thrashed.

We get mostly plastic grocery bags here... they're just the right size for garbage cans around the house =)

I see everything in terms of containers with some food-related objects in them =)

I usually end up with an absurd surplus of plastic bags, beyond my personal needs for garbage removal. Luckily, I can take them back to the store, where they have a plastics recycling bin.
