The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Jessica:

By recycling almost everything, one box of 13 gallon-70 count trash bags has lasted me over 6 months and we still have about 20 left. I just use throw all my recyclables into a 30-gallon trash can (that I got free at the dump).

I recycle plastic, paperboard, cardboard, magazines, newspaper, and glass. I also recycle all my aluminum cans. I turn them in about every 6 months and get about $75 which I put into my daughters college saving fund.
