Here we go! Day 1 off to a great start!

So yesterday I was out of town visiting family for the holiday. I was nervous as to how I was going to get rid of something on day 1 while I was not home, so I brought the “trash” with me!  A friend of mine from high school had put out a request for some maternity clothing. Turns out I had already stacked away a bag of clothing I was going to donate or resell, so Day one, although was a Saturday and technically a “resell” day I brought her the clothing to pick through. She took about 5 or 6 items! Yahoo!

Bad news reality is we brought home a carfull of more things to clutter up the house as it was also “late Christmas” with my family. Fortunately my generous sister and brother in law purchased for our family a new point and shoot digital camera so I can chronically blog the “waste” using pictures as well.

So day 1 = maternity clothing

Almost time!

It’s December 27th and I’m itching to go for this new years!

Baby boy was overwhelmed with generosity from our friends and family for his first birthday (12/21) and Christmas. The hubs and fam overwhelmed me as well!  So out with the old and in with the new!

Over the new years holiday we will be out of town and returning late Jan 1st.  So I’ve decided to pre-pick the 1st day’s waste.

The first day of 2011 is a Saturday, which is Sell it Saturday. So I have to pick an item to sell on CL.

I’m a SAHM who’s new to the world of blogging, well daily blogging. I’ve tried it before and failed twice. But my 2011 resolution is to waste a year! Now most people would say they wouldn’t want to waste a year, but my goal is to get rid of the things in my life that aren’t needed. Each day I’m going to give away “waste”. For example, every Wednesday is going to be “Wardrobe Wednesday” in which I give away an article of clothing that I no longer need. …to give away my waste… but make it useful and not, well waste it!
Another goal is to give away my waist line! I’m hoping to loose an average of a lb a week.

Hello world!

Alright here we go!  Follow me on my 2011 resolution to say BUHBYE to waste!

2011 Starts on a Saturday (by the way I started the blog in November to have all the setup ready to go)

Every day I will be getting rid of waste some how and blogging about it.

My goal is to:

Recycle–plain ole’ blue bin

Reuse– this is Freecycle, friends, SalVal, or consingment

Repurpose– the item must be used for a completely different purpose to “qualify”


Reduce– trash can (womp womp)

Why? My son was born in late 2009, and in August of 2010 I decided to become a stay at home mom. It wasn’t until I was “trapped” in the house that I realized how much “JUNK” we have accumulated in the last 3 1/2 years that we’ve lived here.  Time to get it out of my house!  That means 365 items gone!

The other thing that I want to waste this year is my waistline!  It needs some shrinkage too! Fifty two pounds sounds like a lot, but a lb a week average sounds like a little, so I’m sticking with it!

So you’ll find a daily update on my “trashgiving” and a weekly update on my weight loss!

A few ideas I’ve had so far:

Babyback Tuesdays- Having a toddler in the house also builds the pile of waste, so on Tuesday out goes the babystuff!

Wardrobe Wednesdays- in which I sort through the piles of clothing that I own and release some of it back into the wild.

Freecycle Friday- I’ll be posting on my local freecycle every Friday some unneeded unwanted items.

Saturday Weightloss updates- this will include my weekly average and a weekly weight loss tip or recipe

So Hello World!
