Trash Trash and MORE TRASH
So I have been thinking about the trash in my life.
I realized trash can show up EVERYWHERE!
#1 junk food
My major junk food problem is potato chips!!! I can eat a whole bag of Herr's S/V (the WHITE bag) in one sitting.
My resolve is to eat Tortilla chips and seed based chips!
#2 Junk Mail
I get mail from all kinds of places
My resolve is to instantly put snail junk mail in the paper recycle bin.
and to spam all junk email I receive.
#3 Plastic bags
I have two beautiful dogs who use poop bags. Today I realized I put the plastic poop bag into the plastic kitchen trash bag that goes in to my trash bin plastic liner and then travels to the landfills. YES I cried!!!
My resolve is buy BIODEGRADABLE BAGS from http://www.ecoproducts.com/Home/home_biobags/home_biobags_trashcan.htm
I don't really like cable TV or News but I do love the Sundance channel and now Planet Green (Discover Home channel). I sat down Sunday to relax and 6 hours later I was still watching TV. Talk about wasted time.
My resolve is to keep TV watching time to 2 hours a day.
#5 Food waste
I love cooking and now that I have my garden producing great PRODUCE I am doing it more often. That means leftovers (I HATE LEFTOVERS) and non usable parts of produce all being thrown away.
My resolve is to build a worm composting bin!!
#6 Couples Time
I found the time I spend with my spouse is often argument driven silence.
My resolve is to make the time I spend with my spouse US TIME that is not being thrown away.
I have 23 books that I have not read yet. I bought a new bookshelf to fit them on recently that looks clean and new. I love to read and LEARNING is a personal daily resolve.
My resolve is read all 23 books by Sept 15 and not to buy another book until I have.
We each have to get a TRASH thing under control. SO...........How bout you, do you have any TRASH!!!???
