Yesterday my blogging brain waves were triggered by the container we keep the gum in. The trigger said, HEY do your blog on Recycling.
You KNOW what came Next! As I opened and shut drawers and cabinets, pulling things out and snapping away, my husband said ?What are you DOING?" and as I continued the hunt, I mumbled "blog on recycling".
Our gum, tea bags, cough drops reside in plastic containers that deli lunch meat comes in. I keep them and use them for, small left overs, beets and squash. Why buy expensive plastic containers when almost every thing we buy these days comes in some kind of container.
Our cabinets and garage are full of Plastic Coffee Cans, which contain Sugar, Grits, Flour, DVD's and CD's and in the garage, clothes pins, screws, JUNK,
Small things like paper clips fit in a recycled lunch meat box and fits in the drawer
My drawer organizers are business card boxes, I use the top and the bottom, sit them in the drawer and the bigs ones hold tape and larger items, the small ones hold really small items, one box does double duty. I also use cheese boxes because they are strong. I have one business card box that holds OTHER peoples business cards.
ALSO: think of all the MONEY I have saved reusing things I have already spent money on........
