In terms of big-ticket items and clutter, I'm pretty meticulous about what comes into our home. I don't need a ton of possessions taking up space when I'd rather have the extra room for romping around and making memories with my family. But I am guilty of hoarding a few things. Namely, old household containers. Leftover shampoo bottles, toilet paper rolls and empty tissue boxes.

57 uses for toilet paper rolls including crafts, gifts and household re-purposing

It's a habit acquired from my years spent teaching elementary school. That stuff is like GOLD to a teacher. I don't currently have a flock of students I'm serving, but my own kids are having fun. And I know that somewhere, someday I will encounter a room full of kids who are eager to craft up a storm with toilet paper rolls and I? Well, I will be their hero.
