I say, "Never under-estimate the value of a good garbage can!" Unless
the givers have snooping privileges in your garbage, what's the harm?
Ever hear of "secure garbage?" :)
Or, alternatively, if you just can't bear to throw it out, make an
anonymous donation to a charity shop or save it for the next time
you're in a pinch to come up with a "white elephant" gift.
BTW - It really is unbelievable how much valueless, manufactured crap
we have in the world, while on the other hand, we have so many people
who are starving and eating out of garbage cans.
