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!
