… and other lawn-care equipment.
When my husband and I moved into a house, we needed a lawn mower. We bought an inexpensive secondhand one that Mac decided was more bother than it was worth. We went out and bought a brand-new lawnmower. But, now, we had to do something with the old lawnmower. As annoying as it was, we had to pay for it to be taken away with the trash.
Unfortunately, not everything can be donated or sold or tossed with the regular recycling and trash. Every so often, you must pay for items to leave your property.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Toss five pieces of paper – an old list, an out-of-date warranty, an article you tore from a magazine or printed from online, etc.
