When my son was little be dug a huge hole out back for his "fort". well he out grew that pretty fast I fill the hole with leaves, manure, both horse and chicken, wet trash we don't feed back to the animals, coffee grounds, tea bags, anything that is moldy etc. We turn it every two weeks and it is a great compost heap. We don't have a lot of trash left over every week. Since I use all feed bags for trash bags we don't have to buy trash bags and have saved quite a bit. I try and reuse anything I can when it comes to the animals. I feed them their dog and cat food, plus they get any drippings we don't use on their food. Eggs shell, tack withs we feed right back to the chickens, plus any left over veggies etc. I feed the horses lettuce leaves, and leafy greens, they get corn cobs to chew on. If I have left over cornbread I feed to both horses and chickens. Our animals eat what we eat, which does save a lot in the long run. I use our old toothbrushes to clean the house with, hoofs with, any place that needs a small space to be cleaned. Hair brushes are used on the horses and dogs for grooming. Old toilet brushes I use to scrub out the back of my truck with and the tires of all my vehicles. I use dryer sheets in my dresser drawers, they smell so good! I also use them to wipe down the seats in my truck and cloth seats in the car. They work fantastic in your pillow cases to keep your pillows smelling fresh and clean. I use the big plastic jugs with a pour spout of laundry soap. when done with them I rinsed until there is no longer any soap residue and then fill them full of water for gardening or full of used oil to be hauled off. If you have flowers or roses, I use one that has been lightly rinsed to hold my spray water. Keeps the bugs off my flowers. Egg cartons I use to germinate my plants in, plus if I have sawdust and lint from the dryer I mix them together with a drop of old cooking oil or use toilet paper tubes to stuff full of lint from the dryer and use them for starters in the fireplace. Any old cooking oil, I strain and give the dogs and horses over their food.
