I’m not a regular reader of Digital Music News. Yes, I enjoy music, but not enough to read about it in-depth. A few days ago, I somehow stumbled upon a Digital Music News article with this headline: “10 Reasons Why Austin Is Starting to Suck.”
Once upon a time, there was an empty space on the Internet waiting to be filled by a scrappy startup blog. Then arose two fearless leaders to take on this challenge–and thus the SpareFoot blog was born June 25, 2009, in Austin, TX.
Televisions are some of the trickiest items to store inside a self-storage unit. They’re often the size of furniture and appliances, but they’re much less sturdy. A TV has got a full face of fragile glass that can be ruined by a single scratch and complex interior electronic components that are vulnerable to temperature and humidity. In addition, TVs often are quite heavy. Meanwhile, newer sets are wide and thin, making it nearly impossible to put one in a standard moving box.
You know we all have that one weird item, that one thing you just can’t bring yourself to throw away because it holds some bizarre memory. You know it probably should be kept out of sight, away from your home and office.

This is Part 2 of a two-part series about IKEA and other brands of flat-pack, ready-to-assemble furniture. For commandments 1 through 5, please refer to Part 1.

The idea that IKEA ends relationships is certainly overblown, but it’s rooted in a harsh truth: You’re better off alone. Adding another person to the mix creates an unnecessary layer of coordination and cooperation on top of the already stressful task. Because of the high likelihood of errors, tag-teaming an IKEA assembly project is tantamount to hosting in-laws for an unspecified period of time–you’re just asking for a disagreement.
