Cardboard Box or Box Spring?

I had another blog set and ready for posting today, when I happened to walk by a furniture store on the Upper West Side early yesterday morning. From there, all plans went out the window.

At this time of year, you can’t walk down the street without knowing we’re in the thick of the holiday season. Trees covered with twinkling lights, sales posted in store windows, and this homeless man’s sign that says, “Happy Hanukah and Merry Christmas,” along with a menorah and candles situated in between his black high top sneakers.


With making resolutions around the corner and possibly thoughts of getting rid of clutter, one trick to help you keep your resolution is to change the focus. Instead of saying, “I need to clean out the front closet,” think of it as how the stuff you’re getting rid will help others. Knowing that your donations will make an immediate difference may be all the motivation you need.
