November 18th was Use Less Stuff Day and for the Aspire & Inspire team we were asked to blog about how you use less stuff in your life? Explain ways you de-clutter, recycle, buy and use less, etc.
First of all I am a little bit of a pack rat. But there are some thing I do
to de-clutter, recycle, buy and use less, etc.
1. most of my clothes are either hand me down or come from thriff
2. I give away most of my books twice a year for the church 2 rummage
3. I now recycle papers, cans and boxes since our city now gives us
a bin to recycle in
4. I give our old newspapers and magazines to the church to recycle
That about all I do
Why did they let the turkey join the band?
Because he had the drumsticks

What happened to the Pilgrim who was shot at by an Indian?
He had an arrow escape.

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
but I just couldn't sleep...
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned...the dark meat and white,
but I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation,
the thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
stuffing with gravy, green beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
with a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees...

Asked to write a composition entitled, "What I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving," a student wrote, "I am thankful that I'm not a turkey."

A turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to perfect a better turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store get together. "Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs!" They all asked the farmer how it tasted. "I don't know" said the farmer. "I never could catch the darn thing!"

The blonde Thanksgiving dinner
It was the first time the blonde was eating Thanksgiving dinner without her family. Trying to re-enact the tradition, she prepared a dinner for herself alone. The next day, her mother called to see how everything went.
"Oh, mother, I made myself a lovely dinner, but I had so much trouble trying to eat the turkey!" said the daughter.
"Did it not taste good?" her mother asked.
"I don't know," the blonde said. "It wouldn't sit still!"

The football-playing turkey
The pro football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field. While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout.
Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line. When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, "You're terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I'll see to it that you get a huge bonus."
"Forget the bonus," the turkey said, "All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?"

    To finish the writing "YEAH I AM FLYING!! Now for weigh in day I will WEIGH LESS NOT MORE As I ate the FRIDGE!" STOP THE MAGNETS!

    YEAH on recycling. We also do this in the building I live in. Any large buildings in our city we have to have our own private collection company. We are HAPPY to recycle. GREAT JOB!!

    While I was in the 1X, 2X, 3X I DID do my shopping at 2nd hand places. Now that my weight is down (M on Top, Pants/skirts a 14) I like hitting sales, but!! I HATE to have to much stuff. I have a friend who's losing also, she's a size larger or a size and a half so I am LOVING just passing my stuff over.

    I have been an avid recycler for 20 or more years. Before the city jumped on the band wagon we used to be able to get $ for hauling recycled items to drop off points. Once the city realized there was $ to be made they took over, now charging us (whether we recycle or not).
