The other day, we finally took all of our big boxes (from shelves, the elliptical, etc.) to the recycling center. Our living room felt 10x's bigger without that extra space being taken up. Woot!
In order to get the boxes into the recycling containers, we had to make them flat and Russ had to climb onto the truck and shove them into the container.
The picture that fortunately wasn't captured: me jumping up and down on one of the boxes that wouldn't break-down.... :)
