I looked to see if I could find a word to describe my magazine hoarding problem...no such luck...no fancy word...Yes I have been hoarding magazines.
In the living room we have an old copper boiler that was overflowing with magazines. All ones that we had read and MAY or MAY NOT read again someday. I sat on the floor and sorted through them only keeping The Minnesota Conservation Volunteer and Woodcarving Illustrated. Good bye to Martha Stewart Living, Rachael Ray, Food and Family, Reminisce, Farm and Ranch Living, House Beautiful, Country Living, Woman's Day, Car and Driver...six grocery sacks full that were really heavy...off we went to recycle them.
On the way home Far Guy said "I have a few Train Magazines upstairs...I replied "I have a bunch of Farm and Ranch and Martha Stewart Living in the huge file cabinet upstairs."
In the old copper boiler I also found two small rice bags that I had been looking for and a blue ball that Little Elvis or Miss Miney must have dropped in there.
I emptied out the stainless steel boiler that stores all our extra "throws" and I washed them all.
It felt good to have the boilers all cleaned up again!
