A smart person would have cleaned the house.

Waste Free Bee

Today, the rubbish bin gets sealed up for an entire year and I'm sitting in an explosion of mess.

Life has been hectic and boxes, styrofoam, bits of plastic, junk mail and all sorts of random stuff has avalanched in, weighing heavily on my eyes and constantly creeping underfoot. The washing isn't sorting itself and even the cat has added his bit, depositing a sizable furball on the rug. 

I lament "A smart person would have cleaned the house from top to tail before declaring a year without waste and going public with their waste habits!" I am having daydreams about hiring a massive skip and tossing all the clutter in. Bye-bye mess! Bye-bye stuff. Bye-bye garage full of random items - I don’t even know what you are!

Smart? Clearly not I.  Especially as I have no time at all for a massive cleaning effort to present a fabulous, sparkling house as we demonstrate how to not throw anything away from spotlessly clean cupboards and minimalist tranquility....hmm. Off to Plan B then.

There will be no last minute cleaning effort. No quick dumping of styrofoam as we prepare to declare Zero Waste. Why not? By tackling the tough trash, the stuff most people accumulate without thought, (the stuff we won't buy anymore!) we will learn valuable lessons in reaching the goal of Zero Waste. 

The best thing is, you get the benefit! We will do the messy detective work so your waste free journey is informed and as smooth as possible. Today, I’ll continue to stare at my jumble of boxes and mess. Because tomorrow, and every day after, they are in my lazer sights!
