Tuesday Tip - Garbage Day


It's garbage day. What do you do when you forget to take the garbage out? I can't begin to count the number of times, we've run out to pull the can to the side of the road just as the garbage truck gets there.  This morning though, we weren't in time. In fact we completely slept through the garbage truck even passing. 
As you can tell we have a lot of garbage we need to get out. We're slowly tossing some of the boards in each week, but it's going to take awhile, especially if we forget to take the can out.

I have two tips this week that I'm putting into practice now.
1. Take your can across the road so it can be picked up when the truck comes back. Sorry you're out of luck if you're on the return trip side.
2. Put garbage day on the calendar. It seems like such a silly thing to write on the calendar, but it's the little things that often get overlooked.


  1. We are totally with you on this one- we have forgotten to many times...plus our garbage gets picked up by 7:30 am! Not Cool! So now we have made it a habit to take it out the night before...it has worked like a charm. Good luck

  2. oh yeah Nay, ours comes at 6:30. We try and get it out the night before but we obviously don't remember that either.

  3. My hubby is the one to take the garbage out so thankfully I don't have to deal with it. But I do know the feeling of dealing with it when he forgot to put it out. Good tips though. :)
