Yeah, yeah. The first post of the New Year is supposed to be about eating healthier and exercising more and all that jazz, but I thought I'd branch out and talk about our domiciles losing weight and shedding excess, instead.
If you haven't heard of or read this book yet,
Anywho, if we can't throw everything away and be magically reborn, decluttered, at least we can get rid of what we can all agree is meant to be gotten rid of. To wit,
|Snarled, defunct Christmas lights|
Styrofoam peanuts can be put in a large plastic garbage bag and dropped off at a place like Mailboxes, Etc.
And crapped-out Christmas lights can be dropped in a bin at the Girl Scouts of Western Washington office until mid-month:
King County Regional Office
13029 NE 20th St,. Bellevue, WA, 98005
If someone happened to give you an appliance in block styrofoam this Christmas, remember that those unwieldy things can be dropped off at IKEA, the next time you go buy unassembled, profanity-inducing, discount furniture.
So let's start the year with lean, mean garages, if not bodies!
