That $50 put gas in the truck and bought some household items that were much needed. The idea is that next time the recycling is taken, hopefully next month the rest of the things from the yard will be up and sorted. Then I start over. The money from the last trip could have been used to purchase one of my child's supplements and have money left over. That's something to think about. The fact that you can buy a few days worth of groceries with that is something to think about also.
I intend to keep recycling but instead of taking it off as it annoys me and starting over I will be holding onto it until there is enough to fill the back of a truck completely up. The idea is to start using it to do things like make repairs, pay my auto insurance and gifts for the girls. Maybe it'll work out. Occasionally replacing supplements to last a few months at a time would be nice. We'll see how it works out.
