Re: Have you gotten rid of too much?

Yep, good thread, I found my earlier reply on there but wanted to add more

As far as using good stuff for kid's projects etc, I have put our old plastic kids plates that I was getting rid of, and a cup or two, in the kids craft box. They can be used for mixing up paint, potions, whatever, but they are not in my way and are in something....the craft box....that already existed.

And when I use up something that has a recyclable plastic container and lid, I put it in the kids 'box of boxes/containers for building stuff' box. They sometimes use random lids for paint, then they get chucked out. It means I have spare containers on hand for school projects or whatever and if the box gets too full, I put some of it in the recycling.
