I can't ever seem to throw away bubble wrap. No, it won't ever be useful. I only ship items extremely rarely, and when I do, I can purchase any packing I need. I keep the bubble wrap because it's fun to pop the bubbles. But I want to make it last, so I don't pop all of them. I am going to do something new and drastic for me. I am going to take the bubble wrap in which my New Zealand pottery was packed and pop all the bubbles, then throw it away. And it will be OK.
Kids, it's moments of clarity like this to which you can look forward when you reach your 30s.
