This is the staging area for cans that will end up in my collection once their contents have been drained or drunk.
These cans are lined up near the sink waiting to be cleaned.
And this is the closet where cleaned cans go until I can take their picture, add them to my collection website and log them into my master can list. As you can see, they've been piling up recently. One of these days I'll get them "processed" and into storage.
This bag of cans is my son's "collection," but he collects them to turn in for cash. If we find a can that I already have in my collection AND I already have a double of (for trading), then he gets the can for recycling.
Normally these little "piles" aren't quite this bad, but as I said earlier, I've been busy recently. And that's no reason to stop collecting!!
