As we did the Clean Up Before Sunday Night Church Home Group Starts thing last week, I ran across that random item.
It’s a water Frisbee. Or flying disc. Or whatever name isn’t trademarked.
It came in a cheap pack of water balls. I think the Easter Bunny might have brought it to our house.
Water balls are awesome. Baseball games happen regularly during our summer spent at the pool.
This water disc was never used.
Yet, because it was in perfect condition, I started to stick it in our pool bag for next summer.
And then I remembered The One Year Test.
The One Year Test is how I decide whether season-specific items get to stay in our house. But I had to remind myself that I didn’t need to keep it for a year to see if we’d use it. I had my answer.
There’s no reason to keep it to see if next summer will be the magical one where we fling water discs across the pool while laughing and smiling and not getting sunburned.
When would we have used this? On our trips to the pool over the summer.
Did we? Nope. Not once.
Off to the Donate Box it goes.
That’s how the test works.
