    Default Empty wastebaskets- Mini Challenge

    I have a terrible habit of letting the little waste baskets in our home get almost to the point of overflowing before I empty them. Today I went around the whole house and emptied them all!! Definitely am proud of myself and intend to do so on a regular basis!!

    How full are your waste baskets?

    Haha, I have the worst time keeping up with the bathroom one. It seems to overflow in a day or two. Teen. It's a good reminder because it does bother me.

    My house is small so I don't have extra wastebaskets to keep up with, so that's a good thing. Good job.

    My mom was so OCD about the bathroom trash when we was growing up. I mean if someone blew their nose or put a candy wrapper in the trash, she was right there to dump it! lol

    Now this is one that I will be doing this week.

    I am a little funny about the bathroom one too. But I just started my garbage back up so will be emptying them all this week. Excluding the bathroom, I tend to let them build up a bit when I am not taking garbage service.........or I will dump them into the kitchen garbage.

    The one for the dryer lint I take outside and scatter around for the birds. They go crazy carting it off for their nests. Fun to watch!

    Mahalo FF - I knew that I was saving dryer lint for something!! Actually that is one wastebasket that I forgot to empty!! It's not a laundry room, more like an outside laundry closet!!

    I always forget the laundry room, but I do the rest every garbage day.

    Okay.....mine are all done and ready for garbage day.

    Put the dog 'hair cut hair' and dryer lint out on the newly mowed lawn (yesterday)......and within 20 minutes it started raining.......AAARRRRGGGHH! So may just be mowing it right back up next week. Birds tend not to do 'soggy stuff'!!

    The rain wasn't long enough to 'sog up' the dog hair and lint. Birds are loving it.

    Wish I could get a video of the little devils trying to fly off with some of the pieces. It is a crack up. They get such a big piece that they can't get airborne!!!
