The Rule of Ten Challenge, Day 2

Blessedly, the genetic disease Rattus Packicus seems to have skipped a generation (or two or three) in my family, and I don't suffer from it. I'm not one to hold on to a bunch of stuff just for kicks. My one exception? Greeting cards. For a while there, I thought I would put them in the scrapbook albums...only now that I've gone digital, it's definitely not happening. I won't throw them all away...the first ever card my hubby gave me, the first "Congratulations on being pregnant" for the first baby, some extra special cards from my children....Call me a sentimental schmuck, but I'm keeping them. And there's nothing wrong with that. They simply must stay organized, and in their own home.
However, lately my "schmuckiness" has gotten out of control. So today, I'm recycling nine greeting cards that have overstayed their welcome and are now collecting dust on the piano.
Item number ten? A canning jar with yellow tempera paint...painted shut, and taking up room in my craft cabinet.

What are your ten items for today?

Get to work!
