Maybe A Wall of Name Tags?

You know, if I had been thinking, I would have started collecting them earlier.  The name tags, that is.  You see, I volunteer at the local Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.  The other day, the director mentioned that she had ordered me a personalized name tag.  I got to thinking about the name tags that are gathering in my jewelry tray.  There are only a few, but they are special to me.  When my husband was at school a few years ago, everyone had a name tag.  (That was very helpful.  I recommend it to all commands.)  Also that year, I got one for my volunteer work.  I treasure both of them.

Then I started thinking about old nametags that I have discarded.  Heck, I can remember some from as far back as high school, and definitely some in college.  I’ve had more than a few jobs that came with name tags, and volunteer stuff, and some for conferences.  I think I could probably make a little “love me” wall out of those name tags, if I had them all.  What a fun remembrance that would be!

What sort of things do you collect from place to place?

About She of the Sea

Oh dear - SpouseBUZZ wants a bio from me. I hate writing bios! What do you want to know? I'm a Navy wife and have been for something less than 20 years. I have four daughters who are approaching the teenage years faster than I can drink a Diet Coke. I love writing for SpouseBUZZ because I know that someone out there understands whatever it is I am saying. I also write about money at The Paycheck Chronicles and I am studying for the Certified Financial Planner exam. This year, I have managed to avoid most of my usual volunteer responsibilities (Girl Scouts, PTO, church, etc.) so that I can focus on helping out at the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. It also allows me to make decent but unappreciated dinners and keep relatively up on the laundry.

Still haven't learned to get Christmas cards out on time, though.
