    K-Cups: have a stock of disposable K-Cups that you don't want to throw away (or a co-worker who uses them)?  There are plenty of uses available on the internet. A few of my favorites are:  Crafts: paint them for decorations; cover the hole at the bottom and kids can use for paint; cut vertically from the top about 1/2" and fold over to...

Whenever I eat lunch, I use my reusable dishes.  When we have work luncheons, everyone sees me using my reusable dishes.  I have hopes that it will...

    We eat out frequently, and some members of my household don't like eating leftovers very often.  Therefore, there are times we discard a decent amount of leftover food from our fridge.  I could only imagine how quickly this would add up for composting.  I'm not a very "earthy" person-don't spend much time outside or with...
