It never ceases to amaze me! Just when you thought you have seen it all!

How do you remove all of those nasty little secrets hiding behind closed doors? Or the remnants from the remodeling project just completed!  Where does it all go?


 In my experience, it breaks down as follows:

  • Donate to a worthy cause
  • Wait for "free clean up" days. Tossing just about anything and everything including the kitchen sink!
  • Attempt to pawn off on a friend or neighbor
  • Stare aimlessly at it and do nothing
  • Find an open dumpster and dump illegally, (I don't condone this)!

Instead of drawing unnecessary attention to yourself.  Sometimes it just necessary to "BAG IT"!

What a cool concept! What will they think of next?

What a great idea! I had no clue that renting dumpsters was so expensive! Just one question...why is a Tampa Bay newscaster wearing a turtleneck?

Elaine - Could it be, a cold snap in FL? Actually, about three weeks ago I do recall the evening temps dipping below 40 in that part of the country. Did not check the date on the broadcast. Either that, or the cat got the best of him!


BTW, this was my first feeble attempt @ a blog! I will try harder next time!

To add to your list, post the unwanted items "free" on Craig's List.  Works every time!

Gina, I've seen something like that on the BBC decorating shows.  Leave it to the Brits to come up with a solution to our overabundance of trash problem.  Thanks for the local info.

WOW this is so cool - I just did a kitchen remodel the dumpster cost me $400 and I still have alot of stuff left that I have to take out a little each week to the curb!  How interesting!

Thanks for sharing, a neat idea. I will bookmark this for future. It's nice to have alternatives! Another idea is to take it to a local Habitat for Humanity Re-Use store. A lot of that stuff can be re-used. Love Craigslist as well.
