Recycling…Baby Steps

Posted: August 20th, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

So here’s my new little organization tip from none other than my Parents As Teachers Rep. I know - we were supposed to be talking about the babe and instead she started giving me some great organizational tips! Who knew?!

So my problem with recycling is that I want everything to go to the garage but the things that are on their way to the garage usually end up on the banister next to the door to the garage. Close…

So she recommended storing a ‘collect all’ recycling tub under my kitchen sink.(You could also do the pantry if you had the space and it was in close proximity to you.) But up until a couple days ago we already had that reserved for the little guy’s sink bath…

…and now it holds a tub, that once is full, I can take out to the garage and sort.

Okay, I lied. See how bad I am at that.

Really, I am just starting with cardboard/chipboard. Then I will move onto glass and plastics. Baby steps…

Now Beckie this is all you are getting! This is one of the little sumthings that I got at Ballard Backroom but you gotta hold your horses for the reveal. It still needs something to go on - or should I say, over, and I’m on the hunt…

…but isn’t she beautiful?!!! She was the only one and you can’t wait to hear the deal I got on it!

    Ooohhh…I think I know what that mystery fabric is!!! Do I win a prize???

    Did you see my box of recycle stuff that sits inside my entry way because when my husband’s car is parked in the garage, I can’t get to the recycling boxes. So, I’ve started a little collection and just keep adding to it. Not the most attractive thing to see when you walk into the house (although with the state of my house right now, who cares). Too bad my sink is a corner sink and the cupboard under there is worthless!

    Can’t WAIT to hear what I’ve won! :)

    Did I slip to you?! Okay — you win a 1 hour walk with me and a oatmeal chocolate chip recipe! Congrats!! As for your recycling tub - let’s talk next week when I come over - I bet I can find a place for it. Hey that can be your prize!!
