up your trash
Start by organizing your trash, decide what is recyclable and what's
trash. Remember, landfills don't hold an infinite amount of trash. Anything
that is recyclable, but contaminated is considered trash. Like greasy
Join communities or volunteer programs to pick up trash in the beach,
or park. Just remember to separate what is recyclable and what is not.
Make some money
Lawn mower gave up it's last ounce of life? Don't throw it away. Some
nerdy kids love to do stuff with the motor. Ever seen a bike with a
lawn mower motor? Same goes with computers and other junk just sitting
around in the house. Have a garage sell, or auction it off. If no one
will take it, try donating it. Especially your clothes you've held on
to ever since you were a kid. There many kids out there that can surely
use that sweater your mom insisted you wear before leaving the house.
Do some great service to the world, you'll be glad you did.
Maximize and Reduce
Use what you can to it's full potential, therefore reducing the amount
of money spent. Buy material that is willing to last longer in the long
run. It may be quite expensive, but in the future, you'll see yourself
saving some money.
