Recycle and Maximize Your Stuff

When was the last time you took an inventory of all the stuff you own? Over the years, you certainly have accumulated so many things. From the many stores sales you went to, the bunch of items you bought that you think you’d use someday, to the many things you already own, I’m pretty sure there’s a huge old pile of… stuff you haven’t used for months, maybe years.

I, myself, was forced to look at all my things when we recently moved homes. I hate throwing things, since I always like to think somebody will have some better use of my things, but sometimes I can’t summon the courage to give things to somebody, thinking they might not want them. Am I glad I found so many ways to recycle my old stuff. Let me share them with you.

Nike has a great program called Nike Reuse-A-Shoe and they accept old rubber shoes and turn them into basketball court flooring or running tracks. That one received quite a lot from me.

Now don’t you just feel a bit squeamish when you have to discard some old bras? Bosom Buddy Recycling has a wonderful program that gives out bras to women who most need it – those who are in shelters or transitional housing that cannot afford a good undergarment, and people who are in breast cancer-survivor support groups.

Of course, my most favorite of all is Swaptree.com which gives me a constant supply of books, CDs and DVDs for free That’s because they have a network of members who are willing to swap their old supplies for free.

These things helped me towards my goal of being zero wastes, and it can help you too.
