Remember The 3 Rs (reduce, Reuse, And Recycle)? How Do Take Advantage Of It?

Ok, here it goes. It's not a matter of being rich or poor, it's a matter of learning to save in this trying time.

Now I know that we are all seeing the effect of the recession (and if you still deny it being a recession,pardon me) right now. This is the time to save just incase something happens, you'll have money in the bank to rely on while you're trying to get back on your feet.

The question is, how to you REDUCE, REUSE, AND RECYCLE?

Rem. we must always consider the other side too: Or I might see this economic crunch as a reason to make the 3Rs a pressing issue, something if we cannot do for our environment, atleast we can do for ourselves.  

So it should not be so hard for you to list a few ways on how you use the 3 Rs, maybe some of us that are light years behind can also make a use of it.

Sapphic, Here if they find recyclables in your garbage, they wont touch your garbage for a week

Also most recycled stuff can be taken in for money so of course people try to recycle as much as they can

While you have not stated that you are "Not" concerned about the environment, it is clear that your thread is driven my plain economics as opposed to environmental considerations. And FYI, in Europe generally, we are light years ahead in the 3Rs game and it is not majorly driven by pocket considerations.

Go to CVS, Walmart or w/e department store, you can get a bottle of dawn dishwasher for less than $3.

Save the use bottle for next time. The next time you buy another bottle of dish washer, pour water in the empty one, make it 75% of the bottle. Now pour and pour soap into the empty 25% space. Keep doing that and you'll save yourself 3 extra travel to the store per one bottle.
