While I would love to try more new things, here are some old things I'm not doing any more.
- Shave my legs. This is not because I'm some earthy kind of person, it's that they just don't have hair anymore.
- Balance my checkbook. I was delighted to give this up a couple years ago, after I realized what a waste of time it was for me. I only write a few checks a month, so the balance on the bank website is pretty accurate.
- Cut out Boxtops for Education. I used to be a little obsessive about saving them, thinking if I throw it away it's like I'm throwing away a dime. And who wants to throw away money? (My husband has, but that's a different story.)* But then the school did not even collect them last year. So why bother?
- Make a grocery list. This is new! I don't have to keep a written list because my darling iPhone does it for me.
I wonder what else I could stop doing? What have you given up?
*I use the ashtray in the car to hold things...sometimes trash, sometimes spare change. Like about $2.37 in change from In'n'Out -- they were using $1 coins that day. So he literally threw away money when he cleaned out my car and, without looking, dumped the contents of the ashtray in the garbage. Yes, I discovered it and fished the coins out of the garbage can. I'm not proud. I used those dollar coins on the next trip to In'n'Out.
