Source: CNET . Nearly every household in America has one of those brown boxes with an Amazon smiley logo. And they come in different sizes. Some are useful. Some are not. Amazon will not do something about that with their "less packaging, more smiles" program to turn these boxes into more interesting and fun uses. Some of these boxes are reused. Repackaging, returning items, or just storing items for moving. Now, Amazon wants to turn these boxes into housing for cats or help spur a child's imagination by turning into a space ship. Amazon's website for has a variety of ideas. Spaceships, robots, housing for pets, or even one's own fortress of solitude assuming there are enough boxes. What other builds can the wall of boxes in every household's living room be turned into? Tables? Definitely.

The questions I have are not about whether you should use them, or does it really protect your bottom from little tiny critters from other people’s nether regions and unspeakable. My questions are, how do you place
I recently started reading a book about how we should maximize our limited time on earth and do what we are meant to do and outsource certain tasks to others who are more suited to do them - let coders who are better at it than we are, let someone else walk our dogs, or clean our homes. While I believe the idea certainly has merits, it is not for everyone. Not in the beginning anyway. Plus, there are things that we should do ourselves like walking my own dog (I don't own one). And as for cleaning one's home, I do believe that unless you live in a mansion, you should take time to at least tidy up your place on a regular basis even if you are a high power attorney, doctor, or, you know, me. Let's start at the beginning. I'm not good at cleaning my own house. I do it from time to time when inspired but for years I did not do it on a regular basis. Fast forward to years later and what happened? I now clean my house on a regular basis. Every two weeks or so. What
