What To Do With the Unwanted Gift (of phonebooks)

Twice a year I walk to my front door and am greeted by a not so desired gift – phone books (I live in an apartment so we are “fortunate” enough to receive multiple phone books). While Dex may know, he apparently doesn’t know well enough to not include me on his gift giving list.

Now once upon a time, the phone book was a necessity and the updated version made many folks quite happy.  Not only did everyone have the most current number for their favorite take out places, but now they also had a handy-dandy booster seat/door stop/step stool/whatever you want to make out of the old phone book contraption.

However, we no longer rely on the five-pound behemoth to connect us (thanks Internet!).  So, if like me, you no longer want Dex’s little treat, you can ask to be taken off of his special list.  Just click here, enter your zip code, follow the prompts (it will seem like you’re ordering phone books but you’re not), and when you get to the page asking for your information and how many phone books you’d like, just enter “0”.  It’s that easy.

So, what will you now use as a booster seat/door stop/step stool/whatever you want to make out of the old phone book contraption?

Thanks for reading Bright-Yellow!
