I am pleased to announce that day #1 went swimmingly well. As of 10:00 this evening I now have set aside 2 fuzzy little window insulators, a used sheet off a lint roller, 2 Kashi bar wrappers, the sticker off of my apple and a Starbucks cup complete with sleeve and lid. The things I did throw away today: a used Q-tip, 3 dead flies (I washed my windows...flies have a tendency to hang out in there.), an apple core (I couldn't compost it...I was at work!) and used T.P. I put my banana peel in the compost. Go green.
Oh...does hair count? I threw some of that away. Don't worry, the rest is still intact on my head.
P.S. If you have no idea what I am talking about please refer to my previous post. Thanks.

Well, Friends, today is Day #1 of a month long experiment/challenge. Starting today I will not be throwing anything away. And by anyTHING I don't mean EVERYthing. Any-THING would be any item that is not a used paper product (toilet paper, tissues etc.), left over food particles or liquids, or any item that is toxic or harmful that I feel the need to remove from my life.
I am doing this for a few reasons.
1. It sounds fun. I like a good challenge.
2. I am curious to see how many things I throw away in a month.
3. I am also curious to see how many awesome things I could create out of "garbage."
4. Go green.
