(Yes, that^ is a 12 inch ruler!)
As a crafter, it can be hard to hamper hoarding. “But I’ll need more cardboard!” you think to yourself. This is true, but at what expense?
For me the cost of storage is not only special, & aesthetic, but also relational. The wife hates seeing me sneak in with a new box, or scrap, or whatever.
So ask yourself these questions before storing:
- Do I actually need it right now?
- Could I easily find this again?
In the case of the picture above, that’s a 24”x24” section of unbent or folded cardboard. While the answer to question one when I picked it up was “no,” I also knew it would be tough to find a piece this large, and I’m glad I kept it! Had the answer been “no” to both, I should have skipped it.
I’m building a 16” long stable and this sheet will serve me well to create some nice, smooth, & clean walls.
