It was garbage day yesterday and as I rolled the trash can to the curb I was very proud of the fact that our family of 3 (plus 2 dogs and a cat) only had 1 tall kitchen garbage bags worth of garbage. Our eating out a lot during the course of a week is one reason for less garbage at our house but we cooked meals at home every night! What I was also proud of was all of the recyclables in our recycling bin. Yay us!
