    I have a method for cleaning out unused stuff. I put it all in a box during spring cleaning, then date the box and put it in the garage. 3 years later whatever is left in the box goes to the dumpster. Tried leaving them in the garage for a year, then throwing it out but then i found i needed some of that stuff. so then i did 2 years and found i needed something again. So far 3 years has been a good time frame. I haven't found anything yet that i need that i threw out, and I've been doing this for about 9 years now with the 3 year wait.

    Yes any liquid soap will go bad. It separates basically, but you can't really see it separated. It will turn really runny and not create the suds like it used too. I had a refill bottle under my sink that was about 5 months expired and it did that.

    Most of your cell phone repair stores will recycle old phones, Best Buy has a recycle program if there's one near you, some Walmart stores have a recycle program, and I know Verizon has one, they'll send you the packaging to ship it to them, or did the last time i recycled one.

    I had no idea that dish soap went bad either and am happy that I read this!

    Also, I love the 3 year idea of keeping things in a box but if not used in 3 years, out it goes. At the end of the 3 years, do you just toss the box or do you look in it first? I can so see me having to look in the box and then be torn about having to toss some little thing (big things I can get rid of with no problem at all though - go figure, huh?! lol)


    Thanks so much for sharing!

    I will keep praying for her. Also if you think she would like it - if you'd message me her name and address, I'd be happy to send her a card. (Hugs for the both of you!)

    at 3 years the whole box goes into the dumpster. If i haven't pulled out what i needed by then it's not needed anymore. I don't look inside or i'll want to save stuff i don't need So at 3 years i tape up the box(es) and toss them.
