After many happy years of gert lush long hair flapping about in any sort of a wind, I decided to have it all lopped off.
It was a decision I took a few weeks ago and I thought I’d just kick it around a bit before heading for the scissors to see if I wanted to change my mind, but as time went on, the more it irritated me, the hotter I became on sunny days and so finally, yesterday, I lunged for the blades and ooh, I feel like a new woman!
There are lots of ways to reduce the size of your bin without incurring any cost whatsoever.
For example, if it’s a composter you’re after, you could always knock something together from a couple of old pallets, which are readily available on many industrial estates if you ask nicely.
But there are also many items that require a degree of investment and they’ll make your quest a little easier. In the book I named a few of my favourites and I could have listed dozens more, but there just wasn’t enough space!
