RE: thoughts on being a pack rat, but I have these styrofoam trays

Judi.....your heart must have been racing! I'd still be shaking with

I'm a horrible housekeeper both at home and at school. In some ways, I'm
happy for a small space because it really does keep throw-aways to a
minimum. And to be honest, I just don't do projects that require toilet
paper tubes and cereal boxes because no matter how hard I try, they still
look like it afterwards.

On the other hand, one parent gave me 350 heavy Styrofoam meat trays - the
bag stands about 3 feet tall. There's the "sopping paper" glued onto the
inside that can be removed, but nullifies them as printing plates - any
ideas out there for using these (other than paint trays?)
