It's hard to believe the holidays have come and gone in a matter of weeks, which means all of a sudden our "binge eating" is going to be frowned upon. It also means it's time to think about taking down our festive decorations. This can be a  bummer not only because it's like getting rid of all seasonal cheer, but we also haven't the slightest idea how to get rid of our Christmas trees. Luckily, we've discovered a step-by-step instructional guide that walks us through this process in a painless manner.

See, we're big fans of this particular method of Christmas tree-ridding, because it covers important steps we so often miss. People usually forget to karate chop off the ornaments and turn the tree upside down to shake out any children, but trust us-- it's necessary. What comes next might be a little daunting, but sometimes you've gotta be tough when disposing of said tree.

It involves some criminal action, hacking off branches and visiting the local dump, but no need to fret-- it's a quick and painless process. You'll also get to keep a sprig of pine needles when all is said and done, so that's pretty cool.
