    Is there any way to deter raccoons and other pests from ripping apart your garbage bags and strewing the contents all over the place? We keep the garbage in the garage normally, but I accidentally left a small bag on the step last night :rolleyes: What a mess I had to clean up this morning! I...

    So, does this mean I recycle for nothing?:skept: I have a hard time believing they sort through them especially after they crush it all up.

    Today, we went through and threw a lot of stuff away. We try to do this as often as we can and we still never seem to catch up. We found stuff that should have been pitched years ago. I shredded cancelled checks from 1994. I thought our bills and such were caught up but boy was I mistaken...

    Just curious, how many bags of garbage (what size) do you put out a week? DH and I are wondering if we're abnormal or typical. We're an empty nest couple and we put out one Superstore grocery bag of garbage a week. I thought it was more than that, but DH claims not. As he takes out the...
  8. Calculations and Alternatives
    For multiple reasons I am attempting to do away with buying kitchen garbage bags. So far this year I haven't broken down. Generally I would pick up a box/roll that got me through a month for $3.50 at the Dollar store. With our 6% sales tax that would run me $3.71 a month providing we didn't...

    A very dear friend just sent this to me: One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car by...

    I made my compost bin today, it was really easy. I think the most important thing is to make sure the lid locks on nice and tight, because you need to roll the can at least once a week. I used DH's power drill to put the holes down the sides, put a layer of shredded paper, then some dry leaves...

    Sprinkle baking soda in it along with a few drops dish-washing liquid. Scrub with a brush (a new toilet brush works great), getting under the rubber gasket and all around the inside. Then turn on water and the disposal and flush thoroughly. For a fresh citrus scent, throw in a few cut-up lemons...

    I've been using cloth shopping bags for quite awhile and even though I thought I'd miss the small plastic ones that I reused for bathroom trash bags, litter disposal, and other things such as packing or toteing around muddy cleats, I really haven't. I saw posted somewhere a comment to that...

    I wanted to share this recipe even though I know a lot of people don't eat cereal because of the expense. This recipe is designed to change the ingredients according to what you have on hand. Of course, coconut and pecans can be expensive. The cereal, coconut and pecans are all...

    Spring is a time for growth, a time when old things are thrown away to make room for the new. Last week, i started with purging wardrobe - no longer holding on to items from years ago!! Some stuff was reaaaaly old. OMG, my oldest shoes was those terrible 80s boots...
  16. Discount Stores
    Has anyone tried their garbage bags? Are they strong or are they cheap and weak? I have made the mistake of buying store brands before.... however since Aldi's is basically brand name stuff sold under their Aldi's label? I usually buy Hefty bags at Walmart in bulk, but I have had pretty good...

    Ok, so I am getting ready to make a garbage can composter. I've read posts here, as well as how to make it online. I know I need to drill holes in it for air circulation. I am assuming that I drill them around the sides towards the top of the bin. Then somewhere on the bottom, but I'm...

    Well, the City of Welland has finally done it. they are now charging us to get rid of our garbage. They will take two containers of garbage. So of course, we have been heaping our two garbage cans. Well now they throw the ones that are over the edge of your can back in your yard...
