It occurred to me today, as I looked at the tables that much of the stuff that we pulled from boxes, Rubbermaid bins and bags are one form of container or another. Glasses, bowls, plates, vases, cups, pots, pans, purses, baskets, on and on the list goes of scads of stuff designed to contain something.
Of course, there are exceptions like the lids. Dozens of lids, purchased separately and priced individually by my Aunt at previous sales. No bottoms exist for the tops. For a good long time we have saved all those tops thinking we would come along upon the bottoms. We haven’t and won’t. We have had a scrap metal pile numerous times. I have decided to have a scrap glass pile now, which will be recycled because frankly I did dump a lot of broken glass and may I tell you our overages (tonnage) have at times been amazingly high…due to glass.
