See how a family manages to produce only two handfuls of trash per year
Thomas J. Story
In the playroom there are four bins of toys. The rule is simple: If the boys want something new to them, it needs to fit in the bins.
- Lots of toys: If the boys outgrow something, it’s donated, sold, or re-gifted. Béa and Scott encourage friends and family to give gifts of experience rather than things. This year, their 10-year-old’s birthday gifts included a weekend of skiing and gift certificates to a climbing gym and the local ice cream shop.
