>Recap on Recycling Post from Dec 2010


This is just a quick recap from an old Dec 2010 post.  You can see the original post here-


About that time, we began using grocery bags as our trash bags.

It was hard at first making the switch, but I’m glad to report, this has now become very easy, and rewarding!

We have purchased one (1) box of regular trash bags since we began in Dec.  That box is pretty much still full, and I don’t anticipate buying anymore soon.  We use the regular bags occasionally for collecting trash from multiple rooms,  and storing items like blankets.
We have consistently used the small grocery bags for all our trash in our kitchen, bathrooms, etc.  The small size is perfect, and means you have to empty more often (keeping stinky trash out of my home), but mostly RECYCLE and REUSE more.  We compost or garbage disposal more, and save things like glass plastic containers that can be reused.  Any excess items I recycle through Recycle Bank (and earn rewards for it) or donate on Freecycle.org.  You can set up membership in your area for freecycle.  It a great place to offer, or request items that are no longer useful to you, or items you need.  I even ask for more plastic grocery bags on there!

For the art of recycling and reusing Freecycle is awesome- it is International, and you can visit the main page freecycle.org to find your local group.
to see if its available in your area, and you’ll receive $$$ saving rewards, and gift cards for recycling.  Another AWESOME program.

I’d love to hear from ya’ll on some money saving, recycling and reusing techniques you are using.
