Wait a minute

Some guy from North Chili, N.Y., is trying to get everyone to lighten their load by putting stuff out on their curb on Oct. 24 to let other people pick through it.

Okay, first, what’s a New York town calling itself Chili for? Second, this is supposed to let you get rid of useable stuff you don’t really use. Sounds good. But what happens when you go digging through your neighbors stuff and go home with more stuff? You get nowhere or go backwards on the too-much-stuff treadmill.

I’m going to have to think about this one. I know reuse is right in there with recycle, but I’m not sure how this plan would play out in the real world.

Check out the Web site and see what you think. But like supporters of Curb Day say, “What’s rusting in your garage?”
