So I Uh......... Found My Ribbon

I'm joining in with Musings of a Housewife to share what I learned this week.
I'm keeping it short.
This week I learned that I shouldn't be allowed at after Christmas sales unless I take complete inventory of what I already have first!

This is what happens when you forget that you bought ribbon and put it somewhere "safe" 2 years in a row during the after Christmas sales!
I just found this tucked away in 2 different bins. My philosophy? You obviously can't have enough ribbon. It's my typical OCD meets the after Christmas sales!
Did I mention that I found 10 brand new boxes of assorted lights and 7 brand new boxes of icicle lights? I'm sure I bought them after Christmas. You know, just in case! In case of what, I don't know! But if you need a spare box, just let me know! LOL!

Oh let the games begin! LOL!


  1. I know why you bought the ribbon and lights....It is for the Holly Jolly give-away! Well, maybe not.

    Have a wonderful Tuesday.

  2. Wow! Got ribbon?! LOL! What do you do with all of it?

  3. Lol! I thought I was the only one to discover boxes of stuff like that! My philosophy is, you can never have too much ribbon. SOME day, I'm sure I'll use it!!

  4. OMG, that is ALOT of ribbon. I guess you'll be set for a while now LOL.

  5. ACK! I do the same thing!!!!!!

    for some reason, I also have these tendencies when it comes to toothpaste too. weird.

  6. I am sure there must a craft project to be found on-line which requires a minimum of a dozen rolls of ribbon....and if there isn't? ....well there SHOULD be! LOL:)

  7. I'm bad about hiding Christmas presents and finding them after Christmas. So the last couple of years I hide everything together in the same place.

  8. You most definitely got ribbon!!! hahaha
    I will let you know if I need some! :)

  9. Kim,

    OH MY You could really do some damage with all that ribbon :) LOL

    Thanks so much for your prayers and love ~ I feel them

  10. "Ribbon, Ribbon for sale! Fifty-cents a roll!?"

  11. Um, do you have a bit of ribbon I could borrow?? LOL - you might have a problem my friend! :)

    It's good to know that in case of National Disaster, I can get my Christmas needs from you!

    Big a-girl-needs-every-color-and-type-of-ribbon-just-like-she-needs-every-color-and-type-of-shoes hugs to you! Maybe you are trying to make up for a lack of shoe variety - hee,hee!

    Have a super day my friend!

  12. This could have been your Friday funnies post! I laughed out loud for real! I do believe you can't have enough overkill on icicle lights when the real thing is SO FAR AWAY! I am kinda feeling for your hubby though as he is hanging all those brand new lights you bought! I too am like that as well so this is why I laughed! Good to hear I am in good company!

  13. I always love when I buy stuff after Christmas and then forget about it until the next year. It's like an early Christmas present to me : )
    And you can never have enough ribbon!

  14. I do the same thing. That ribbon collection looks like mine:)


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
