You think I got a problem?

Check out all these boxes piling up in our garage. Its even worse than this--theres more, I just wasnt willing to take more pictures and show the evidence. The other day Baldyman was putting my latest boxes out in the garage and I overheard him mumbling, "the woman is nuts, she's out of control, this needs to stop", LMAO.

NOW, this isnt as bad as it appears. Its not that I'm ordering all kinds of things that I dont need or that I'm a compulsive shopper. This is what I have been doing to build my stock for my body care business. Well, not all but most. Of course I've found a few items for outside yard and a few items of clothing..but not many. (at least I dont think so) I dont shop for clothing in stores, I do all of it online, I also buy most of my home decor or yard decor online, hence--boxes! Well, when I started this body care business a couple months ago--it really added to the mess. I try to save all the boxes for shipments I may have for the business or for our kids who always seem to be moving.
I just thought I'd share with you all what my garage is looking like these days and how I thought it was funny when i overheard him in the garage. Now mind you, when the UPS guy or Fed Ex or whoever shows up with these boxes....Baldyman is just as excited at me--he comes running in--You got more stuff today!!!!

12 Thanks for your comments!:

dawnie why dont you make the boxs flat ,and when you need them you just have to tape them back up..there would be more room ...

Dawn said...

sometimes i collect boxes, too... you kow, you just might need one!! i always get quite excited when a package comes- especially for me!

My garage used to be like that too, when I was addicted to Ebay. Now everytime I get a box it seems to get filled with something right away. So if I need to send something I am out scrounging for boxes.
I agree with Rosemarie, I would make the boxes flat and stack them.

Too funny. Looks like our garage last season before we cleaned it out. It's just so easy to keep boxes and so hard to throw them out as they cost a pretty penny new - most I have to buy for my business are $2-$3 each. So the next time your hubby complains just let him know how much money you are saving him by saving the boxes. :)

Great post! There's not telling what all they say to themselves about our little quirks......LOL!

As an ex-grocery girl I need to tell you that you can break the boxes down and store them flat. You will put new tape on them anyway when you send out your products. But all in all it was a cute/funny post. And poor Mr Baldyman...I know my hubby mutters about me under his breath too!

Have a Thankful Thursday

I remember reading about the business when you were looking for a name? So how is it going? Do you get lots of orders? It is good to hear when someone's dream works out (o:
