Well, since the article came out we moved and have scaled back A LOT - mostly because I decluttered so much of what I didn't want to pay to move. Right now, with unpacking my life seems as though it is one huge garbage pile: cardboard boxes and packing material ABOUND! And there is NO recycling here, unless you could scrap metal which is so popular people steal street signs.
But ... thanks for the reminder. As I learn the area and create my new price book, I'll be looking for places that sell in bulk.
