Confessions of a waster Day 3

I hope everyone is getting some kind of voyeuristic delight out of viewing my rubbish.  It's an interesting experiment because it is making me think about;

1) What I buy
2) How it is packaged
3) What I use
4) How I dispose of items

I emailed the ward office last night asking compost donation (do you think I need to get A Life?) but no reply as yet.  Seriously, being able to compost again would halve my garbage production or thereabouts.  I am also going to start switching to cotton threads and felts as I think they can be composted too.  Err...when I find somewhere to put my compost.  How many times can you say compost in a paragraph?  I also tracked down some washing powder in what I hope is a paper bag and am currently looking at buying some bulk organic bread flour (also in paper).  Phew.  As for the eggs, I am going to go back to the Tokyu which sells the non-GMO eggs in cardboard.
