Bits and scraps

Hello, again,

Do you all save bits and pieces and scraps and leftover odds and ends? I do, totally against the advice of the clean house/non-clutter/how to stage people. Their points are clear and easy to understand, except. .  . I really do use stuff over again. While in the process of trying to wrap a gift or set up a vignette or frame something the memory of that small piece of ribbon/fancy border from a calendar/bright green envelope would be exactly the right touch to ramp up the present, presentation or display. It leaves me feeling vaguely guilty much of the time, yet triumphant when the odd bit is just the extra oomph needed to make a project special. How do you all cope with these warring, persistent themes?

Color me confused.
