The Milk Crate Challenge from Tik Tok has hit the Yakima Valley and people are out there searching far and wide for milk crates behind the 7-11 stores or on Facebook Marketplace, but I think it would be a better idea to find other things to take on as a climbing challenge.

Here are five things better than milk crates to stack up and climb. They will even keep you out of the E.R. for broken bones, see, I'm looking out for YOU!

1. Books:

Stack 'em up and go read them books. Reading is fundamental, kids.

2. Dishes:

I've got some dishes piled up in stacks in the sink, YOu can tackle them. Make sure you get all the crud off the plates, too!

3. These Dollas:

You can stack these dollars and save them in your bank account. Keep your 3rd eye wide open, fools!

4. Paperwork:

I know i'm not the only one who hates paperwork. I just gather all the papers together in my office and stack them up into piles. Someday I'll tackle them, in the meantime, you can come sift through them and help me decide what to keep and what to throw away.

5. Magazines:

You can tackle the stacks of magazines and old newspapers in my neighbor's house. They are hoarders and need someone to help them climb the towers of trash. Put your thigh muscles to much better use than climbing dangerous milk crates. Be a good Samaritan!
