There's no time like the present

I have put things off long enough. It's time to finish doing my spring cleaning. Well, I have need of more containers. So I guess I will look for some at Walmart. After I finish I will have accomplished a small miracle. I procrastinate usually. I put things off and wait until I feel like it and that time never comes. So, I decided to get things done ASAP and finish getting the boxes and take all the extra stuff to the Salvation Army. I have even tried to put out an old VHS and audio cassette cabinet and put a FREE sign on top. After it sat there on the edge of the property as hundreds of cars passed it by, nobody seemed to notice the sign that said, FREE. I will leave it out over night, but nature had it's own agenda. It started raining and if it makes the cabinet wet well, there might not be much left of it by tomorrow. I may end up with a piece of useless junk. Maybe, just maybe, a person driving by will take notice and take that old piece back home with them and dry it up before the particle board has a chance to pucker up. Update. Today, May 18th, 2016, I looked outside at the empty driveway and there was a newspaper where the cabinet once was. The box sign I made with a brick inside had also been ripped open so I will have to throw it away. Shucks. I was hoping I could reuse it. It was a nice little white box with the word FREE on it in Black marks-a-lot ink and two eyes for 0's. lol. But it was good that the rain had not ruined it before it was taken.

You could always freecycle it.

Can you explain please, what the term freecycle means? I am unfamiliar with this term.

I just did some Spring cleaning in the past couple of days and it is a good feeling to have those jobs done around the house.

The main meaning behind the title is apparent. When getting rid of or more properly put, when giving away things no longer needed, we need to do this ASAP and not pause to even ask ourselves if it is the right thing to do at that moment because, of course it is the right thing to do.

In Denver every time I put free on something it was gone just like that.
