This week was interesting from a weighing perspective. We do not usually fill up garbage bins in other rooms of the house so once in a while we empty them out. This was the week that we did it and our weight for garbage jumped up almost 7 pounds! Yikes! I guess we better keep a better eye on our other bins in the home.
Valerie our families super nanny was helping with getting the garbage and recycling out this week and it was very cute! She came downstairs with the bathroom scale in her hand wondering how on earth she was to weigh all our trash! It took a while to show her how to use the techy scale (LOL) and then off she went to weigh herself. Needless to say she wan not pleased to find out her own weight as well as the weight of our trash!
Later she told me how ‘weird’ it was to be standing on a bathroom scale holding a bag of trash and doing math to figure out the weight of it all. I think it is kinda weird as well – but more on the wonderful side as it really is teaching my family to be so much more mindful of what we consume and chuck away.
Have a wonderful week!
