Buddy Friday: 43 and Counting--Plan of Attack!

First of all, I have to say how embarrased and annoyed I was to have collected such a vast amount of supplies. Now, to be honest, I counted everything--container of rubber gloves, all the little dispensers of hand soap, the gallon jug that fills all the little bottles of hand soap. The sheer volume of supplies was overwhelming. The good thing is that they are in one place right now, ready to be used one by one.

After writing that piece, I knew I needed to come up with a plan, so I sat down with my crate of supplies and took another look. What do I need to keep? Can I share or donate some of these supplies? If I really will never use it, I'll put it in a pile for town cleanup day. I have already used up the last of 3 bottles with very little cleaner left. It is gratifying to turn bad habits into good and through the process of elimination, it will be good to replace these supplies with recipes and environmentally friendly products. 43 and counting!

We'll stay tuned for the rest of the story! But I hope the stock market goes the other direction. LOL

Looking forward to reading the continuing saga. Then maybe you could join me in making some homemade cleaner receipes we have had from Lizbeth.

Oh I am so with you on this. I have two large boxes full of cleaning supplies, including 7 cans of Pledge Furniture Spray, plus I have another coupon for a free one.

My only saving grace in all of this, is that I pay very little for most of the stuff with using coupons.

I'm with Gill on the Pledge. Just the smell brings back memories of childhood and dusting my mother's mahogany furniture. No substitutions for that one. Liz
