I have worn out a pair of washing up gloves. A new pair came in the delivery today.
Did you know that you can slice across a rubber glove to make rubber bands? You can cut across the cuff and palm bit for long bands and across the fingers for small ones.
I didn't bother. Not only do I have a stash from when the postman has delivered but I can't remember the last time I used a rubber band. I am in a house drowning in stuff. If I somehow need a rubber band, I will use one of the eleventy ten that are already hanging around, improvise or just go out and buy some. The rubber gloves went into the bin.
I am in enough bother with the dratted cds without hanging on to more stuff. Top Tip - do not hang on to stuff just for the sake of it.
