But this "we don't generate much trash" biotch probably does nto have an outside trash can or on in the garage. She's painting this image of a house that puts one kitchen bag out at the curb every other trash day. Or maybe she lives in an apartment and she takes her one bag out to the dumpster .
and here, we're almost the opposite... we used to hoard the newspaper bags for diapers. Bro & SIL will head out to dump the stink bombs right in the outside trash, and i'd tell them they weren't so bad, they can go in the kitchen trash for now, adn Uncle will take it out after dinner.

we're down to one in diapers now, so it should be less of a problem managign that. i wonder what cute little under-roos A has now...

What I think is strange is that they have only ONE garbage can. Do they never generate garbage in the bathroom? Floss? Hair? Used tissues? Empty deodorants? Used razors?

Obviously, they are better at managing their human consumption and therefore their footprint on this earth. All of us regular people need to learn from them, evidently.

BTW, they probably use the hair that falls out as floss, leaves for tissues, go au naturale for deodorant and I'm sure they don't use razors. Their too much of the naturalists to use razors.

This. We have trash cans in all bedrooms, all bathrooms, kitchen, garage, & laundry room.

These get disposed of so infrequently that they are not enough to warrant their own trash can.

Maybe their apartment's so crappy, they have a communal bathroom down the hall. And they live in a studio so they only need one garbage can.

L1: You know that you have an alcohol problem so work on that. Find something that you love to do that does not involve alcohol. Exercise. Make some new friends. Just work on yourself for a while.

L2: You do NOT have a problem. Just take out the f-ing trash. What a waste of space.

L3: I don't remember the original letter, but "confront it" sounds right to me. Staying steamed is never the right answer.

We generate so much trash in the bathroom that I have put a separate can in there for recycling. I use disposable contact lens and I feel better tossing the packaging in the recycling.

The toilet paper cores get tossed in there too. It must be because there are 3 girls, but we go through a roll every two days it seems.

And don't even get me started on the disposable razors. Hubby has to use a new one each time he shaves because his facial hair is akin to a brillo pad.

1: I care so little about this daft girl's life I could not even read the advice.
If I hear alcohol as an excuse for letting peeps go in bajingos that don't belong to them, I will hunt down the responsible party and punch the appropriate part!

2: Not taking lw's side, but if I were the offender, I think I would ask my friend for a trash bag. I doubt I would ever place an unwrapped diaper directly in someone's kitchen garabage can.
