What seemed like a brilliant idea

Sometimes I think I have come up with a great idea only to turn out-not so much.

When I was packing last month (Yeah, I'm still unpacking). I decided to recycle all that shredded paper I was making as I cleaned out my office files. So I thought this will be great to pack my extra set of china and glassware. It was perfect. Not a thing was broken, but and this is the big BUT... It was the messiest stuff to unpack and everything had to be washed in the dishwasher because of all the dust. Even things that hadn't been packed in it got dust all over them.

Still sneezing and it's been weeks. Next time ziploc bags filled with air might be cleaner.

I think everyone had ideas that just done pan out. Thats the way of things. It sure sounded like a fabulous idea. Too bad about the dust. AAchhoooo!!!!

Hey Jules!

Yes. This one was disappointing because I had great plans for my shredded paper. (g)

I'm thinking I'd rather quietly die here at home in the mess. Anything rather than pack. *shudder*

Sorry your idea didn't work but I bet you have had a bunch that did work
