Clean Up Woman

April 29th, 2007 at 09:50 am

Anyone else remember that old song "Clean Up Woman?"

That song is running through my head this morning!

Already this morning I:
- Used my husband's dinner leftovers to make my breakfast (chopped up a bit of meat in to little pieces, zapped it in the microwave with some BBQ sauce, and rolled it up in a whole grain tortilla --- yum)
- Used his leftover toothpaste tube: He grabs and squeezes from the middle, and when he thinks there is nothing left in the tube I take it from him and get a couple more weeks' worth of brushing from it by starting at the bottom and squeezing the living daylights out of it!
- Used his leftover soap scraps: When the soap bar gets too small for his liking, he grabs a new bar. I save his little soap scraps, moisten them a bit, and squish them in to perfectly good little soap balls that I use for my showers.

I actually like doing these things; I like the creative challenge of finding ways to make things stretch as far as possible!

    I am beginning to enjoy this so much myself! I keep trying to challenge myself to come up with new ways of looking at things and using things up!
