There is a box in my basement called the “If they come over box”.
In it, I keep things that people have given us, over the years, that we don’t really work in our house. When the “giver” comes over, I go to my box, retrieve the thing that doesn’t quite work and put it out.
There, I said it. I am a horrible person. I just donated that box.
A study conducted by Kijiji.com and Chadwick Martin Bailey in October last year discovered that 59% of people still had unwanted gifts from the previous Christmas. The questionnaire, completed by 1,554 Americans aged 18 or over, revealed that 51% of them had kept the gifts in the misguided hope they would find a use for it one day.~ Karen Kingston blog 12/2010
