I use boxcutters for their intended purpose, and none other….


This is a picture of all the recycling I just took out.  I cut apart all the boxes I had to compress them so that I could take them out all at once.  I feel liberated!  I no longer have zillions of boxes cluttering up my apartment.

You would not believe how many boxes this was.

It was dumb to save them up for that imagined “moving day.”  I mean, dream on, Julie.  I can get boxes from UHaul in a flash if I really need them, if this moving day actually materializes.  Or, shall I say, when.

Also, I cleaned up the hard drive of the computer I’m writing on and wow, what a difference.  No more freezing!  I thought this computer was on its way out. All the programs were freezing and the screen was turning white every few minutes.  It hasn’t turned white once since the cleanup, and there isn’t any keyboard lag anymore, either.  All I did was to move the large files onto a portable hard drive. These had also been backed up into cloud storage as well.   Then, I shredded those files, the ones on the hard drive of this computer.  Poof!  Fixed.
