There was salad-y food waste this week. One and a half tomatoes and some lettuce. Maybe it's because one iceberg lettuce seems to go on for a very long time, even with four of us eating it, or maybe it's because the weather is flitting from summer to winter and back again faster than you can say Food Waste Friday. One minute we're eating salad in the garden, the next we shivering over mashed potato and sausage casserole.
Elsewhere in the house, project Tidy is going steadily. Surplus crockery was disposed of via Freecycle. Freecycle is such an easy peasy way to declutter and I should use it more. I've never 'received' anything as you have to be so quick off the mark to respond to listings on the Freecycle website, but that works in your favour when it comes to decluttering!
Within half an hour of advertising my crockery, there were three responses, and within two hours it had left the house. Given that there were four heavy bags of it, that was almost faster than I could have got it to the charity shop. The hamster cage and accessories (RIP Fudge) is taking a little longer to go but I have high hopes that a new furry friend will be benefiting from it soon.
The other success story is the shelves on either side of the porch which went from this:
resulting in one bag for the charity shop, one bag for recycling, one odd welly that had somehow lost its partner (not sure how to recycle that - any ideas?), some random leads and wires (recycled to Husband's 'man drawer'), and a pair of crocs that have been divested of Daughter's girly Croc adornments and should fit Son this summer.
And two overwintering chrysalises (or whatever the plural of chrysalis is). I left them undisturbed and hope they have survived the winter and will become butterflies or moths soon.
Any food waste or decluttering successes at your place this week?! Are you a freecycler?!
