Bones! Bones! Surely they would have been kept and turned into a tasty broth . . . or maybe glue?

probably what they did do with them Sprocket... the glue on stamps used to taste nasty enough to be made from old bones!

some of us had just learnt to throw things away when we were asked to start saving them again

used to collect bottle tops and jam jars at school

rubber bands formed great balls - or in our house were wrapped round the door knobs - just a useful place - always knew where to find a rubber band

and I loved button collections

Well, my great grandparents did, and my grandparents. A lot of it rubbed off on me. I can't throw away a rubber band to save my life - like Viv said, they go around a doorknob.

Paper bags have always been saved, they come in handy. Makes good parcel paper, and do-it-yourself gift paper. We have a wood burning stove, so it's all firestarters. :)

Metal saving is a compulsion from childhood, the husband has it too. (My swarf used in artwork, for one.) We both do metalsmithing type work, metal comes in handy.

All kinds of things get turned into rags, washed and saved. I used them for the rats' condo. Also for general cleaning up.

Heh, the habits you form and aren't even very aware of... :D

Hi D's Mum!
Nice to "meet" you.
I live in Holland and we're pretty good there with recycling stuff. Paper, glass, kitchen waste, it's second nature to keep it separate. Plastics are on the way,

Hope you get back into the swing of it, it's great seeing a moblog build up over time.
