Sweeping The Floor

College students seem to order a lot of pizza, especially when they’re studying for final exams, so they always have extra pizza boxes in their kitchen. These boxes make perfect dustpans. You’re going to throw the pizza boxes out anyway, so you might as well put them to good use.
