Well, it's not like it's one of my projects or anything, just a little piece on Ali's post about simplifying the holidays - she recapped some of the reader comments today, including mine. Look for my blurb under "Decorating" -- I'm comment #6 (lawrenbc -- that's me!) on Ali's post today.
If you're like me and are too lazy to click over to see my words of wisdom, here they are again:
6. From Lawrenbc: Last year I freecycled 2 boxes of Christmas decorations that I had felt obligated to keep and display but had never really cared for...they had felt more like a burden than a holiday treat. I was so glad to know that a family who otherwise wouldn't have had decorations got a chance to use my extra items, and I felt a big weight lifted off my shoulders. There will be a lot less to put out (and then put away after the holiday) going forward.
