Laurie4b Posted February 4, 2012 Share Posted February 4, 2012 Managing objects is a huge weakness for me. I'm getting ready to do some decluttering, but I can get caught in decluttering versus taking care of the environment/thriftiness. So for instance, I know there is stuff in the bathrooms that is out of date or that we're just not going to use. I feel like I should wash the bottles out and recycle the plastic, but then that makes the decluttering task huge, instead of a 20-30 minute project. Or I have a mixer that works well enough to beat a cake, or make icing, but I have to hold the bowl on the little spinner thing with my hand or it would fly off. No one is going to want that--and I don't either. The thing has a million gadgets. However, I feel guilty adding to the landfill. That kind of thing comes up a lot. If you are good at decluttering and also have a concern for stewardship of the environment, how do you think through those kinds of dilemmas?
