DH is taking the girls out to the beach for the rest of the afternoon and evening, and made pita pizzas to take with them for dinner.

He just said "I really wish we had an old pizza box to put these in", because the pita pizzas were still hot and he didn't have anything to pack them in that would be easy to transport and not make them soggy.

WELL.

WHO has a STACK of nice clean "pizza boxes" from scrapbook online shopping? ME.

Saving boxes totally pays off.

DH still thinks I should recycle my box collection.

I think my basement is a fire hazard with all of the boxes I save!!! You just never know when you're going to need one.

i save boxes too! my mr. thinks i'm bonkers because every time you open my hall closet door, you're met with a shower of boxes. i love sending packages to friends/family so i like to keep a collection of shipping boxes around. plus it seems a terrible waste to throw out a perfect good box

Don't you love it when your scrap stash saves the day for something completely unrelated?!?! I'm on vacation for the next two weeks and one thing I am going to do is clean out the garage and that includes getting rid of a gazaillion boxes that have accumulated.

Yeah for you! If you'd recycled your box collection you wouldn't have had the perfect box for the beach picnic.

So, what are you doing with your free afternoon?

Yes, it is always nice when scrap-related supplies come to the rescue. I feel totally vindicated in my box-collecting habits now!
