Do you borrow anything from anybody?
I sometimes borrow an item from my mother in a pinch. For instance, I recently recovered cloth seats on 4 dining room chairs. I knew we had a staple gun. But what I didn't know was, I needed shorter staples than my husband normally uses. The staples just wanted to jump out of the wood and not go into it. So I called my mother(who else?). She has done these types of things before. She told me I needed shorter staples. We did not have any so I borrowed hers.
When I was done with it, I could not return it immediately because she lives 10 minutes away. It is not practical to always jump into my vehicle and go right away.
So where does it belong until it suits to return borrowed items? Usually on my counter or some other convenient place. Now once it sits on that countertop for several days, it becomes part of the scenery. Blending in makes me forget about returning it. Does that make sense?
Maybe not if you are not a cluttery person. But that is what happens to me.
So, I'm throwing the question out to you. What do you do with the things you borrow? Do you have a special cupboard or drawer you put it until it is time to return it? I need your ideas in this area.
