I have been saving packaging materials for a while. It's easy to do around Christmas with the way our family utilizes Amazon. I'm pretty sure I often look like a crazy hoarder, but there is always a purpose in mind when I accumulate a collection of otherwise easily overlooked/recycled materials.
Years ago Aeryn and I coined what we call the bubble-pop-hop, which consists of jumbo bubble wrap and ABBA. After laying all the bubble-type materials all over the floor we blast Mama Mia and just start jumping.
It's over by the end of the song, and suddenly everything fits in the recycling bin more easily.
