Confessions of an Obsessive Compulsive

I'm pretty sure that I have a few OCD tendencies. Why else would I do the things that I do? For instance, up until last week, I had saved every. single. receipt. since Adam and I have been married. I had them tucked into envelopes, organized by month, hiding in my file cabinet. Literally 49 envelopes of receipts. I mean, that's sick! Who does that? Last week, I finally had enough of myself and started shredding 2006 and 2007's receipts. After all, who needs to keep receipts from three years ago? I'll keep two years worth, but anything over that, forget it! But I've got to tell you, shredding is such a pain, because the paper bin isn't big enough and constantly needs emptying. You have to stop shredding every three or four envelopes to dump the shreds. Ugh. What is wrong with me?!?

Wow, that's a lot of receipts! I have to admit though, we have a lot in a couple boxes from who knows how long ago. We don't save every receipt, but we do save the "important ones" (Uncle Dave's words). Good job getting rid of some, I'm sure you'll never need them from that long ago.
