From the Publisher's Desk: Little bottles can make a big difference

We moved into our home almost four years ago, yet I’m still unpacking boxes. I’m embarrassed to admit we keep a storage unit that’s full of boxes of things we must not need because they reside a few miles away behind a chain link fence on Northcrest, unseen and untouched. Sunday I decided to liberate the contents of one box that I stuck in the corner of my closet when we moved in.  At the bottom of the box are my “summer” clothes —shorts and tops that people who live in warmer climates need in the summertime. I wore them in Grants Pass, but not so much here.

The top half of the box was a graveyard for travel-size bottles of shampoo and conditioner, mini bars of motel soap, and small containers of body lotion, shower gels and tooth paste that I grab when I’m packing to go somewhere.  

When I sorted through all the products, I was surprised to find how many duplicates I had and how much space this stuff was taking up. So I made three piles: unlabeled or dried up products to throw away, partly-used products I’ll use when I travel and full, new-looking ones. The latter went into a bag I’ll be bringing to my Rotary Club lunch next Thursday.
