I'm curious... What's the best change you made that reduced your garbage?

Agreed!

Anything you can build with, like wood or steel, tools, and highly reliable vintage appliances, tractors, and the like aren't going anywhere in my world.

I think a major part of that old timers wisdom was the 5 year window.

Probably gives you a more accurate "scan" and more data on what to do, or not do  with things.

I wanted to stop buying fabric conditioner sheets, because I rarely used them. After some thought, I bought a bottle of liquid fabric softener, which lives in my laundry room. When I want such a thing, about 1x a year or so, I soak a washcloth with the fabric conditioner and throw it into the dryer with the damp, clean whatever. Works. No waste, except the bottle -- but they last a long, long time at this rate.

Well, a nice question to ask. This is one of the main concerns I have faced a year ago. In my house, I had a lot of unnecessary junk. I decided to dump this scrap to clear the area. I researched and discussed different options with my friends, and I came up with a solution by hiring a garbage bin to help with the waste disposal problem. Thank God, that was beneficial to me.
