OK, I've officially made it six months now and I'd like to celebrate by sharing the love. I'm putting this out there to see who wants to join the insanity and hang on to your garbage like I do. That's right, alienate your friends, confound your neighbors and scare your spouse just like me (OK, that hasn't really happened). Now I'm not talking about six months, just a week, and I'm perfectly happy to tailor it to whatever you feel comfortable doing (like I'd have any idea anyway).
If you want to go whole hog and fill the basement, have at it, and let us hear how it goes. How about just saving all of your recycling, or maybe just your plastic bottles? Or, if you don't feel like actually hoarding, keep a running tally for a week and let us know in the comments what you came up with.
Everyone is going to be different in how they do things, but for me, I keep a bag on the basement door and everything goes in there. When I get a chance (hopefully every night but not always), I pull it all out, note it and where it goes, and pop it in the basement. If you're keeping a list, maybe just keep a pad with you, and note down what you threw out and when, and where it will end up (recycling, landfill, re-purpose).
So who's with me?
