Oh Snap!

23 May

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

How many of you enjoy popping bubble wrap? I do. The packaging wrap that comes in some boxes with the large bubbles are fun too. I like to put them on the floor and pop, pop, pop!

Over the past few years I have felt myself drawn to a new kind of pop…Snapware.

I realized I had reached the obsession stage when I came home from shopping at Publix grocery with a large rectangle one that I had bought without considering the price. After washing it I began to slowly snap and unsnap the latches.., snap, unsnap, snap, unsnap… until my husband commanded me to stop!

Yesterday our daughter spent the day helping sort items for our church rummage sale. She sent me a picture of a Snapware container and asked if I wanted it….duh. A bit later she sent another picture of more containers and asked if I would like them. Double duh. Then she asked which of the two I wanted.

I am thinking that buying this Snapware from the church rummage sale will nullify my splurge on the one I bought at Publix.

Wait, don’t people with addictions tend to justify their actions? Oh snap!

    Snapware is fabulous. I didn’t know it existed until Christmas this year. Didn’t know the stuff was so amazing until I looked for good containers for cookies. Oh Happy Day! Some of the cookie recipients who are cutting back on too much stuff gave it back to me to keep. Tra-la-la!

      I find all kinds of uses for it. I store opened cream cheese in small ones, a perfect fit! I use one to hold spare pens and a note pad. No more tipping over and spilling. I spoke with my daughter today and she said one of the small ones she bought from me at the rummage sale was a perfect fit for the pickle she takes in her lunch. No more wasting plastic bags.

    I almost spit out my drink when I read the last line of this! I was shocked to find 2 sets of snap ware at the sale. Glad I was able to pick them up for you.

    What a chuckle you gave me with this one! I guess we each have our own little obsessions!
