I'm a junk gypsy!
I love junk! Not just food, but junk as in things that people normally throw away. I save yogurt cups, bottles, boxes, you name it, it's probably in my closet. I've always hoped that in life people will remember me because of what kind of person I am (in a good way of course) and my accomplishments. But with my love of junk I will probably be seen as the young lady that desperately needed to be spotlighted on an episode of hoarders! One thing I saved this month was an egg carton, and with this egg carton I made a seed starter. If you are as big of a junk Gypsy as I am and want to start growing those veggies yourself!
