We visited with Dave Chameides back in January, when he first resolved not to throw anything away in 2008. Was he able to keep to his pledge? We visit his basement yet again to see how his year-long experiment went and whether it took the toll he predicted on his relationships. You can see photos of Chameides in his very full basement on our blog.
