52 Boxes – Cleaning the Garage as a Way of Life

My howling nightmare of a garage didn’t just get this way by itself. It’s been a thousand bad decisions over the course of years. So this year I’m committed to tackling one box a week and emerging with perfect order and clarity of mind.

Box of packing peanuts

Box 1 Styrofoam Nuggets

Because I’m getting a late start I’m going for the low-hangning fruit here. The only decision to make with a box of packing peanuts is how to recycle them. Our local curbside recycler won’t take styrofoam of any kind. There are other ways to recycle packing peanuts but I’m opting to reuse them. Dump the peanuts in a garbage bag, collapse the box. Boom. I’m done.
