My glorious project for this morning!

I have only a few students at Guitar Center this afternoon. I decided to do a minor project this morning. I gathered up all of my beer cans, tossed them in the sink, and then started stomping them. Stomping beer cans was a skill I learned well during my younger day Summers in Montana. If someone wants to recycle them, stomping makes them more space-efficient. Cha-ching! Are you good at stomping aluminum beer cans? A perfect stomp leads to a small flat circle. Yes, I am easy to please.

If that is your kitchen, you need a maid.

@TheHorse Maybe we can find a maid service with such a person employed there! The babies thing, you will have to negotiate for yourself!!

@TheHorse I don't know if they would crush bearfoot, but if you could good way to cut your foot. oddly enough, I don't do it anymore. Mostly because there are a lot less cans in this household, and two it's kind of hard for me to pick them up once I've done it. Fun as a kid, though.

Here you do not stomp the cans you get ten cents each for bottles and cans like they are.

Here it's by weight for the cans, I believe.

@TheHorse That is how it was in Colorado. Less money for a lot more cans.

We used to crush our cans; but it got to be too much of a project. We have a dining room full of cans to be sold for $$. Enjoy the long weekend.

@TheHorse Can crushers are very 1990s. And I guess your right foot is cheaper.

Speaking of stomping cans...I just read the other day that they do not want you to crush them anymore when recycling them. Seems kinda weird.

I have no clue, really. It's just a habit. Might it vary State by State?

You could make a little money by taking those cans in. We used to gather them all over and take them to a machine over by the store. You just chucked the cans in and the money came out.

We have deposit cans and bottles here. You can get a whole nickel per can but they can't be crushed.

@TheHorse No, they won't take them if they are crushed. It doesn't make any sense.

Why don't they like them crushed?

You have a lot of cans to stomp. Maybe washing dishes would be good too.

I did both. I am cleaning mode today. But I DID do some editing on my Autistic 2-year-old book chapter.

I've stomped a few but I rarely get them in a small flat circle. Mine turn out more oblong with rounded corners.

Yeah, there are lots of drink cans in my house too. I will sell it to the recycling place. You have to teach me how to step on those drink cans effectively.

The trick is to stomp straight down and focus your stomping energy of the can's center of gravity.
