We have five recycling bins: plastic bags, paper, plastic bottles, glass, and cans. Plus I seem to have accumulated several cloth bags that I take shopping with me but if I should forget to take them, as mentioned previously, I recycle the plastic and paper bags, too.
Somehow I seem to collect things. For 2010 one of my goals is to remove 3 items everyday from my 7 room apt. The items can go to recycle, donated, or trashed...but 3 HAVE to go! Amazing how quickly decluttering goes & I don't feel overwhelmed doing it in one day!
Taking B Vitamin supplements are important for all round health. Taking B50, B75 or B100(potent..be careful) helps in red blood cell formation, mental alertness, skin health (esp. if you are acne prone) & helps boost energy by helping your body turn carbs,fat and protein into energy

The best degreaser/scrubber is baking soda and Dawn dishwashing liquid and a hot wet wash cloth . It will make your sink/stove/oven shine, it has no smell and costs just about nothing! This combo is also great to clean walls and is MUCH cheaper than Mr. Clean eraser!
