I hope you have been able to learn from my success at living frugally. I think it also important for me to share my mistakes. After all, the greatest lessons are learned from failures.
I have found that mistakes do not go away no matter how long I ignore them!
Back in the day, sometime last century, I decided to use kitchen wall paper as shelf liners. I assumed that I could just roll it up and replace it when it became dirty.
I was wrong!
The humidity of the kitchen activated the glue on the back, and when I went to replace it, I found it stuck to the shelf. I ignored it for over a decade.
This week I spent an hour scraping it off of three shelves. Removing the paper in all of the shelves is my spring project.
This was one time when using what I had on hand was not a good idea!
