Coffee & containers
My job at night is preparing the coffee so Sherry can press the ‘go’ button in the morning. I am normally last to head to bed and she the first to rise. She started buying 50% caffeine coffee for some reason (I don’t ask because I don’t care. If you are a sailor and drink coffee on the mid-watch you don’t care, just so it is black and hot).
Anyway after a couple shopping trips I suggested buying two pounds of coffee, one reg, one decaf and mixing them. (I am a cheap skate and it is cheaper that way) Besides how do they make 50% decaf if they don’t do it the same way?
Good containers: I have a problem with throwing empty containers away. The coffee we buy now comes in cans, I save a bunch of them. We drink Green tea by the gallon jug and I keep the jugs. I have at least 15 empty containers in my new shop already.
They work great for the small amounts of paint left in the gallon and 5 gallon cans. They work for small containers when you are doing touch up paint work. I cut them in two and use them to hold nails by size and nuts and bolts. The Gallon tea jugs work well as a water bowl by laying it on its side and cutting the side out for Janie the grand dog when she visits. She is a bull dog and a messy drinker anyway. LOL I sympathize with her because like her grandpa she is deaf.
Do you have any objects that are hard to ‘throw away?’
