Confession: I have a really hard time throwing out old contact lenses. Every month when I open a new package I put the ones I’ve been wearing into another case so I’ll have a spare pair, which means I have to throw out the lenses that are in the spare case. And every month I have to convince myself that throwing them away is the right thing to do, that it would be impossible for me to see through these calcium encrusted 2 month-old 2 week lenses, and that there is a reason they come in packages of 6. It’s just that I KNOW HOW FREAKIN’ MUCH THEY COST, and throwing them away just doesn’t feel right. I dont’ feel the need to save used paper towels, or aluminum foil, or those little Dove facial scrubs. But contacts…man, it kills me.
Am I the only one?
