      Our son is mostly beyond the box phase, but we have a Priority Mail box that we can't throw away, since our 18 year old cat has claimed it...and what Lola wants, Lola gets.  She practically lives in that box.  Whenever someone is looking for her and can't find her the question "did you look in THE box?" is always raised.

       

      39 year old DH cannot throw out paper tubes.   Ever.  He has a drawer full of poster tubes and heavy wrapping paper tubes...I don't know what in the hell he is keeping them for. Roll eyes

       

      Dirt, yeah...we like dirt.  Here's my giant filthy hubby on my teeny tiny bike.  The back tire and tube totally blew out on his mid-race, so he grabbed my bike for the last half of his race.

        I think he forgot pots and pans.  I guess that's mostly for little little kids, though.

         

        And, was paper on the list?  I remember going through an origami phase.  I specialized in pianos.

          Lately the big thing my kids love to play with is Duct Tape.  Granted, a little more expensive than dirt, but still not bad as far as price goes.

            first of all -- bubble wrap. durr.

             

            secondly -- zoomy, have you ever heard that comedy routine about the "christmas paper wrapping paper tube"? that could answer any questions you have about your hubby's tube-saving tendencies.

            Menace to Sobriety

              Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.

                Yeah, we fight over bubble wrap in this house.

                 

                I'm going to have to look for that wrapping tube bit...I don't think I have seen that.  Maybe I can forgive him for hogging up a drawer, after all.

                      I can't find it, either.  The interwebs are being tricky, today.

                            Best thing with bubble wrap...

                             

                            Put it on the floor and roll over it with an office chair.

                             

                            Sounds like machine gun fire.

                              I got this for my mom a few Christmases ago.  Everyone wanted to use it.  It was completely addicting.
