Still emptying out my house, a little at a time…what have I disposed of since my last “Reverse 100 Things” post?
Thursday January 24th, piles of paper to recycle.
More paper on Friday the 25th.
Saturday the 26th, old printer cartridges and some of the packaging from the new ones to recycle – and a bit of packaging that can’t be recycled and has to be thrown away.
Sunday the 27th, ancient sunscreen to throw out. It’s so old it doesn’t even tell you if the bottle is recyclable. Away it goes.
Monday the 28th, more paper and the case a memory stick came in to recycle. And a name tag that appears to be just plain trash.
Tuesday the 29th, another week’s accumulation of glass and plastic containers.
Wednesday the 30th – once it was a dishcloth, then a cleaning rag, and now it’s past being useful for anything. Trash. Also assorted old clothes past their useful days.
Thursday the 31st, a pile of my Mom’s junk mail to recycle.
Friday February 1st, yet more paper including an empty Kleenex box.
Saturday the 2nd, still more paper to recycle.
Sunday the 3rd, recycling rough drafts of a food bank collection sign.
Yes, there’s a pattern here – far and away the biggest category of junk in this house is old paper that needs to be sorted through and recycled. At least I’m making a start on it, and getting rid of freshly used-up paper right away before it spawns new piles…
