How to get rid of stuff

by Larry Geller

Every holiday season it's Buy, Buy, Buy.

But what to do if you have too much stuff? Do you really need that brass plaque with bronze oak-leaf palms your uncle Jean gave you, or could the space it occupies be put to better use? Maybe some of the presents you'll be getting should be turned around and go the other way instead of piling up in the living room.

Tune in this evening, Thursday, to Town Square, on Hawaii Public Radio, 5-6 p.m. on KIPO, 89.3 FM, to find out how to get rid of stuff.

Guests include an organization consultant who can help decide what to part with and how to do it, someone who can help sell things on eBay if that process appears too daunting or mysterious, and a guest who can explain how to recycle your stuff through an agency that will make it available to people who can use it.

[Factoid: Did you know that there was actually a car called the "Opala" (the Hawaiian word for garbage)? "The Chevrolet Opala was produced between November 1968 (as the 1969 model) through April 1992.…It was the first passenger car built in Brazil by General Motors."]

All that and more tonight on Town Square.
