July Jamboree of Using Up And Recycling

Post by Jackielou » Sun Jul 01, 2018 1:10 pm

It is a new month and I am still working on getting my various stashes under control (well if they are really ever under control). Who is with me in seeing in how we can reduce waste, and recycle?

I thought I had already posted that I wanted to join this challenge as well.

I have been doing pretty good with this one so far this summer.
Yesterday for breakfast I made hubby and I a fruit smoothie. I used up a frozen banana and a can of Reddi whip, Also used up an apple that was too wrinkled for Peter to eat.
Last night for dinner we had chef salads. I just set it up like a salad bar and had little bits of this and that.
We used up the last of a package of frozen peas. A small dish of baby corn, a zucchini. Hubby used the last of his salad dressing (blue cheese...yuck). Also used up the last of a bag of croutons.

Hubby used up the last of the eggs this morning for his breakfast so those have been added to the grocery list.

So in the first two days of the month I have managed a few use it ups.

Used up the toilet bowl cleaner.

Used up the tuna pasta salad.

Used up another two balls of scarf yarn (finished the scarves).

So I figured out what was wrong, and why I thought I had already joined this challenge....Some how June slipped away from me and July began.

With that being said.....yes I am in for the July use it up and Recycle challenge.

Hmm, what have I used up since I last posted????

We used up a dozen buns.

I used up the leftover pork roast making hash. Not the best hash in the world but filling none the less. Must find a different recipe.

Used up lots of little bits from the crispers.

Used up a loaf of bread.

Turned a paper towel tube into a holder for the next set of yarn I plan on using up (after I get my wrap completed).
