What Does Your Trash Say About You?

A few years ago, I read an article that said how your trash tells a lot about you.  A thought it was pretty silly at first, but as I thought about it, I realized that there could be some truth to the statement.  For example, your trash tells what types of food you eat by the containers that are left in it.  Your trash tells whether you are a wasteful person or not.  Your trash shows whether there are pets or kids in the house.  When was your trash last taken out?  Is it taken out regularly?  What does that tell about your personality?  Do you have lots of trash from fast food places?  Are you eating healthy foods?  Are you careful about shredding old documents before putting them in the trash so people don't have access to your personal information?  Do you buy expensive things or are your frugal?  Do you go overboard on holidays?  You can tell what products are being successfully marketed by looking into someone's garbage.  You can also tell if they care about their carbon footprint - do they recycle?  Do they throw things away that could be donated and used again by someone else? 

What would your garbage say about you?


  1. That I've just had a cold! So many tissues! (I just posted about my trash actually... I found your blog through Colleen at 365lessthings)

    1. Glad to have you come by. I hope you feel better soon.
