So you have light envy: All those pretty, hazy, ultra-bright-but-somehow-not-glaring LED lights your neighbor has up around the house. Well, so do I, and I am determined to do something about it. For next year.
Sales abound this time of year and especially for Christmas lights. Nobody, but nobody, ever thinks to buy them in the spring. So take yourself on a little shopping trip and be able to tell all your friends that you’re already Green for 2011.
