“The breakup with Free2Move that should have come sooner”

“Dear PoPville,

Free2Move and I broke up at long last. They even threw me back into the arms of my ridiculous ex, Zipcar. I hadn’t used Zipcar in close to two years because of its limitations. You have to reserve for a specific amount of time and return on time or face a fine. Worse, you can’t just park it wherever you wish, but return it where you got it. Those were dealbreakers back when Free2Move and I decided to date each other exclusively.


pot-smelly Free2Move was a heartbreaker and I always secretly knew it. After they refused to even partially refund me for a trip after a tire blowout, I knew it was just a matter of time before we’d be kaput. It has now been two full weeks and I haven’t used Free2Move once. Instead I hail rideshare services, which also give their drivers some income. Win-win! (I like Empower more than Lyft or Uber.) But sometimes driving makes sense, so in those rare instances (for example, going out of town), I’ll take a Zipcar.

It felt really weird calling them to confirm that my old card was still good. It felt like going back to an old neighborhood again… awkward. But hey, they were still there. And Free2Move won’t miss me.

Or at least they’ll never admit it.”

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
