Well hello! How are you getting on with your mission to slim your bins? I hope the gradual steps over the the last few weeks have made it easier for you.
Anyway welcome back to Week 4 of the Rubbish Diet challenge, where my alter-ego Delores, will be introducing all sorts of novel ways to tackle the crud that goes in your bin. Look at her! She's a force to be reckoned with and will be rooting through your bins if you're not careful, so if I were you, I'd have a good crack at taking in as many tips as you can from this week's challenge.
Yes, this week's guide takes you through your domestic chores, encouraging you to reassess the amount of stuff that ends up in your rubbish, whether you're doing the washing up, the laundry or just running around the vacuum cleaner. Sorry I meant to write "running around WITH the vacuum cleaner", although I find the original statement far more entertaining.
There are opportunities to slim your bin at every angle through reusable and refillable options. So do keep your eyes peeled for new products that suit your lifestyle.

So to get you in the mood, take a mini-break, grab a cuppa and read the guide to Week 4. You can find it waiting for you at:
And when you've finished, let me know how you get on and I promise I'll keep Delores at bay!
