Today’s First World Problem

bags of plastic containers

My Collection of Mismatched Food Containers (c) Christy Thomas

In a moment of complete self-indulgence, I am sending to the recycle center all of my years-long collection of plastic food containers and replacing them with a new set that actually has lids that match the containers.

And yes, this is a classic case of a First World Problem!  That’s a great website if you haven’t seen it.  With humor, it helps to put our frustrations in a good perspective.

      it depends – is it someone who will be impressed by paper thread count? FWP…

        And if it is, should I care?
