((up-date!)) $13.05 back.

Collect bottles/cans for the $0.05 deposit?

Knowing we're a bit tight on the budget, yes we do collect bottles/cans.
We right now have 4 to 5trash bags full of bottles/cans.

I'll up-date once I get back from the bottles/can place & tell you how much I had.

Ps, I don't publicly yell out side "I collect bottles/cans!". No!

Yes I would and I have since I was a kid.  We take them back every month or so.

We collect the beer cans we have from cooking. I oddly use a lot of beer in my recipes. That is about all we use in the way of cans. Would you save more money by switching your beverage though?

They don't do deposits here in FL.

didn't know they still gave $$ for them.  we recycle them & i guess if we were in such a tight spot i'd turn them in for $$.

by the way, have you ever thought of plasma donation?  not sure how much you make but i know you get some compensation for it & you can donate plasma more often than blood.  just another idea to make a bit more.  hubby thought about it before when we things were tight for us but he's so skiddish of needles.  i can't do it for health reasons other wise i would.

nope, we do recycle though. My parents collect the cans so sometimes they raid our recycle bin
