My goals this month are going to be cutting down on the trash I put out for pickup and not throwing away any food! I normally only put out one 33 gallon trash bin every other week, but with the cleaning out the house program I am on it has been one or two containers a week. I still have lots to take to the recycling and I took some stuff to the pantry yesterday. It is very disheartening to see what people put out EVERY trash day. It scares me somewhat, that we are such a wasteful society. If I didn't keep my cats indoors I wouldn't have the resulting kitty litter disposal problem, but I also would be burying them too soon. Been there, done that. I guess I could stop feeding them!
I am also going to make an effort to avoid items with so much additional packaging, when I can. Cardboard I can deal with because it is recyclable but that plastic is a killer, and no place around here recycles foam.
A friend of mine has chickens and I can send her the egg cartons to reuse. Which reminds me, I had two of her eggs left and boiled them and some organic eggs from Kroger. Boy was it obvious which were which when I sliced them. The pale yellow egg yolks from Kroger just don't compare. I am going to try and get all my eggs from her from now on. And I paid premium price for those store eggs!
I used three of them in my potato salad and will devil the last 4. Had to use up some potatoes that were getting a little soft! I used mustard, Mom, so you wouldn't like it!
