Be Wise – Minimize Be wise Minimize Like downsize All your supplies You will shudder With too much clutter No word you can utter If you are smothered Just clear the place To make more space This could be the case Of saving the human race As you would assume You will have more room Then new life could bloom And the energy would zoom Just let it go Toss and throw To rebuild tomorrow And watch it grow So please guys I emphasize Be wise Minimize Florence McMillian (Flo)

toss and throw? perhaps recycle or upcycle instead...I do like your message otherwise. I know people who redecorate with the seasons...they toss and throw and restock four times a year! Unbelievable consumerism :)

oh, understood....I saw piles of furnishings all by the roadside in Bonita Springs on a trip last month, from the homes flooded out... nothing left to do but toss in that case and to restart with a minimizing point of view :)

Thank you for your feedback on this and normally I would've said recycle instead, except I was going with the thoughts of all the contaminated loss left behind from Hurricane Harvey that cannot be recycled and can only end up in our landfills.
