This past weekend was a project weekend.  I fixed a cabinet drawer, a broken hinge, a garden fence, and a shower door.  Keenly aware that the shower-door-roller-accessory manufacturer had never measured my shower doors, I started the task hoping that the purchased hardware would do the trick.  Well, not so much.  But, at a pivotal moment, when I realized that the gap was too great, I remembered a prior IKEA project that somehow produced a surplus of washers.

I knew it was a good idea to keep those washers.  They filled the expanse, saved me a trip to the hardware store, and kept about 30 cents in my account.TCM Washers

Some call it hoarding.  Some call it saving.  I call it ‘keeping things around I know I will use again someday.’  I knew it was a good idea.

For the record, I feel the same way about t-shirts, soccer balls, my kids, old wire, and carpet pieces.
