Recycling like crazy

They say that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.  Well, that’s why we have been recycling like crazy.  First, we donated that weird Indonesian oil painting to a thrift shop.  Then, we donated two boring Hawaiian paintings.  Finally, we donated about 100 CDs, such as screechy Celine Dion and yucky Barbra Streisand.  I told David that if we no longer listen to certain CDs, then we should let other listeners enjoy them.

This is our CD cabinet, which has been pruned of unwanted CDs.  We have more space now to add CDs more to our liking.  We tend to prefer classical music, but we do have some pop, rock, Broadway musicals, movie soundtracks, Hawaiian music, and Christmas music, too:

By the way, we plan to install a 30,000 BTU split air conditioner above the CD cabinet.   It will be a Mitsubishi, and we were told that it will lower our electric bill, because it is more efficient than the old air conditioner we have on an adjacent wall.  The temple rubbing above the cabinet will then be relocated to our hallway.  We will have to buy a smaller painting to fit below the new air conditioner.

    Nice to get rid of things you don’t use. Or listen to, but I love Barbra. 🙂

    It’s funny how our tastes change over the years. The CD donations never lasted long on the shelves of the charity shop I used to volunteer at. In today – rehomed tomorrow!

    We have just donated about the same in VHS tapes, hoping that someone out there will still have a player.
