New Year, New Start: Day 26


Shhh…..it’s a secret. We all have them. Somewhere is a pile of more than 2 of the same thing that we are holding on to, “just in case.” I’m not going to ask you to reveal what’s in your stash, just encourage you to pare it down a little. Can you get rid of half of it? Ask yourself how many of this particular item can I even use at one time? If the answer is “one”, then consider keeping one or two for a back up. That’s all you need. Just try it. If you find out, in a month’s time that you really miss having 29 (grocery sacks, Pringles cans, meat trays, pizza boxes) on hand, then you can re-start your collection.

This one made me smile. If only my mother had done this! People brought up in the Depression were recyclers before recycling was cool!! LOL
