Accumulating boxes & plastic: what can I do?

Asked by Yeahright (3870points) October 22nd, 2017

I can’t throw boxes or plastic away, and it is getting out of hand.

I take recycling very seriously and I am concerned about the amount of waste I generate. As a result, I keep a lot of plastic, boxes and plastic bags.

I have practically every box of all electronic devices I own. I keep all ham and spread cheese containers, etc. When shopping for groceries, I use my own shopping bags, but they still put a lot of stuff in plastic bags to prevent leaking, etc. so I also keep someof those.

I have a storage system in place and reuse as much as I can, but things are getting out of control as I can’t reuse all that is brought in.

I need your opinion and suggestions as to how to overcome this and free much needed space in my kitchen and living room.

Thanks in advance for your input.
