I’ve collected some more labels from client homes to share with you.
The box full of hell was mostly a collection of letters documenting old relationships in all their colorful angst. My client was, understandably, not keen on sorting through it all. So we transferred it into an intact box, relabeled it the same way, and stuffed it into a closet. Organizing does not have to mean torture! It can sit there as long as it needs to.
A client used this label for the box with her Nuva Ring and Diva Cup to keep her parents out when they helped her move. Problem is, it will encourage everyone else (maybe her parents, too) to open it. Come on, you know you want to.
For the more culturally mainstream among us, cruft is a geek term that, according to Wikipedia, originally meant “discarded technical clutter,” but has morphed over time to mean random (probably useless) stuff or generic clutter. I think of cruft as being a larger version of the Yiddish schmutz.
So, there you go. As always, I welcome comments and accolades. Please share your amusing and/or useless labels!
