Thinking about how wasteful we can be without realizing it at times.
For the QOTW ~

What are some of the things you might be tossing away without realizing it?
Foods .. what kinds?
If you don't finish eating a meal .. what do you do with leftovers?
Old nick nacks?
Clothing you haven't worn in ages?
What else .. let us know :)

I tend to toss out products such as face creams and shampoos that I thought I would like but end up hating.

Very wise choice Amy,
Sometimes it is fun to experiment with different stuff.
However bummer when we find out we don't like them.
Good to hear you'll wait a bit before you try any other new things :)

what we throw away......

well all my old clothes either go to good will or rags.
leftovers hit the fridge and dh and the boys eat them.
we have recycle bins across the street. i dont do the cans. you have to wash them first.
nick nacks go to good will
furnature goes to the kids or good will
most stuff is recysled in different ways.
i do crafts so lots of stuff is kept for that
i have saved things from our dump.a garden swing,a bench glider,6 chairs i recovered,.....i hate to see thing thrown out

This is wonderful to see Glenda,
So glad it looks like nothing is ever thrown away.
Keep on doing such a good job of not being wasteful :)

I'm fairly good at not wasting stuff, except food. I'm not real good about eating leftovers. Sometimes I'll eat them & sometimes I won't. I'm particularly bad about frsh ingredients & produce. I'm too lazy to cook vegetables most of the time, so I seldom buy them. But occasionally I do. Then I often end up throwing them away uneaten when they go bad. :( Right now, I have fresh cilantro & sour cream in my fridge b/c I used them for the cooking I did this weekend while Nancy was here. I'll never use either again, & will end up throwing them away.

I'm better with other stuff. Clothes, knick knacks, etc. are given away either to Goodwill or the Humane League for their yard sale, or through Freecycle.

Good to hear you do pass some things along Katz,
As for the throwing food away :::gasp:::
If you aren't going to eat the leftovers ..
Is it possible for you to take it to any neighbors that might enjoy it?
Just a thought :)
