Just how much junk do you have laying around? If you are at work, just take a look in that bottom desk drawer.
What else is
Yes, the deep one where you removed the old file folders, scanned the contents and stored the info "in the cloud" and now use as a place to hide your secret stash of Little Debbie Cakes.
|Like I believe that, but ...wHaTeVeR!|

|Are you, like ...you know...OCD or something?|
What about that closet? Got any junk in there that you could get rid of without shedding tears?
I bet you could repurpose some stuff into cute little valentines!

Oh, let me guess. You just took a load of stuff to Goodwill and then had Closet Factory come to your home and systemize your entire wardrobe?
Hey, I know….step out into the garage! I’ll bet your husband/brother/son has a bunk of “man junk” out there you could use to make some pretty UNUSUAL valentines! It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what half that stuff is even used for. I’m betting he won’t even miss it!
Say what? Your husband/brother/son is as neat as a pin and there is absolutely nothing in your garage that doesn’t have a purpose.
Unless it has already been REpurposed - that's okay!
Well, what about your children’s bedrooms? If you’ve got a small child, I KNOW you have debris! And if you have a TEENAGER [OMG!] you have even more! And if you have a FEMALE teenager…well, you have hit the junk motherlode!
Nothing there? Okay, well, you must not have children. Or ever had children. Because when they leave the nest, they leave stuff behind. [Stuff that they expect you to hang on to for years and years. And they think that their old room should be kept as it was when they lived there too! Kind of like a shrine.]
If you never had kids, or if the kids are long gone and you’ve dismantled the shrine, then I’m guessing that the hobby/craft room that you’ve been dreaming of for years is fully operational now, right?
Well, enjoy it while you can, because once the grandchildren arrive it will become a spare bedroom again to accommodate random sleepovers when their parents (your grown kids) need a break.
Meanwhile …JACKPOT! I’m sure there is more than enough beads, yarn, fabric, buttons, paper, watercolors, and other odds-n-ends to make some beautiful recycled valentines. You better get busy!
Get a life! Seriously!
