I'm beginning to think I'm a hoarder because some of things you throw away/recycle I would keep. I keep my x-mas cards and then there are organization that will take them from you (just the decorative side, i.e. cut it at the fold) and make new cards from them, or I myself plan to make new cards from them.

I keep the Christmas cards I get at home. The Christmas cards I recycled were work ones our department gets. Most of them are emblazoned with company logos over the front, so I don't think they would be much use to anyone. But, suggestions for re-use of stuff is always appreciated, so keep 'em coming!

I only got one Christmas card this time. I'm not sure if that makes me sad (nobody likes me) or happy (everybody knows I don't want wasteful crap) or neutral (I don't get cards because I don't send them --> happy).
