Stubborn.. me?

Bj has been going out of town for work a little more lately. Last time he left on a Monday, returned on Thursday at 11:45 p.m., this week will be more of the same. I hate to admit it (but since it might make you smile, I will), I vowed then, as I do now, to not take out the trash while he is gone. Now, one might wonder...why?
1. I am lazy, and our BIG trash can is all the way outside on the side of the house.
2. I have plenty of jobs, I mean it...plenty. This is Bj's one for sure job, he takes out the trash.
3. It's a little bit know, a challenge to see if I can actually go 4 days with 5 people (including an infant) and just one bag of garbage.

Well, last time, I did make it the 4 days. And it is looking like I might make it this time too. I still have a good 6 inches before the garbage reaches the "point of no return." And, really, I am just being green right? So, how do I do it? Careful planning. Dinners....leftovers create very little trash. The easier the dinner the better, and no cans....or at least recycle them.

So, wish me luck. Only one more day, and I can't create too much trash or I might have to break down and actually take it out.

Did you make it? Ramen packages shouldn't tkae up hardly any room in that bag. That is all I make when the hubby is out of town.

I love the picture.

I did, I did. It is getting close to the top now. I broke down made blueberry muffins for the kids, and that created some trash. But, I made it. It's like mission impossible.
