Help! I Can't Throw Anything Away!

I think anyone who creates mixed media art can relate to my lament.  I'm thinking of starting a new 12-step group for craft collectors anonymous.  It is already challenging to keep any order in my craft room - it is such a shopping hobby, this paper crafting, mixed media stuff!

I found a bar of soap I had bought at a craft show - Pumpkin-Ginger Creme (yum!).  So I took it out of the box and put it in the bathroom.  I was going to throw away the box (or at least recycle it), but I noticed the cute little orange and black pumpkin label and thought, "hmmm, I could use that in something, right?"  So I took it to my studio to take off the label and put it somewhere I would hopefully find it before Halloween was over.  Well, then I noticed the box... one side had a cute little oval cut out, perfect for a frame, and the other side I could trim and use to back an ATC.  I threw the sides and tops to the box away before I could come up with any more ideas... Or did I, what's that on my craft table...  hmmm... inchies?

I'm doomed...
