Use it up and continuing to fill the recycling bags
Recently, I did a stock take of all grocery items, including personal care products. I had 3 "empty" deodorant containers amassed. Time to clean them out, and then recycle the completely emptied containers. Pictured above is the dregs that I pulled out of the aforementioned containers. I melted it down in the microwave, then refilled my currently being used, solid deodorant container.
It solidified pretty quickly; I'm estimating that I saved 2 week's worth of deodorant in the process, although these efforts far from make me rich, they are economical and green.
Everything here is being scrutenized, use it up, will I need to buy move before July?, will I probably sell this off/donate? Based on the overflowing bags (just one week since the trash/recycling run)of recycling-not necessarily attributed to Christmas, we are meeting my goal of pairing down. Space is opening up in the frezzers, on the pantry and linen closet shelves.
