Every cent counts. We save all our bottles and cans and take MILs also for some extra money. My neighbor usually has a couple large bag of beer bottles and soda that he throws away every week. Lately he has been giving his bags to us to take back too since he never did.

DD says a girl at school saw me taking his bag of cans and now let everyone around school know about it. Shes asking me now to stop taking them. His cans make up more than half of our total so we wouldnt be getting as much back and this is part of our extra money for unexpecteds and treats.

I'd do it anyway. I'd tell my daughter I was doing it to help the environment, that recycling is something everyone should do.

I just think even if the daughter knows they are doing it for the money and she's embarrassed by it, she doesn't have to admit to it.

How old is your daughter.

I like the recycling idea or maybe say that sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. No shame in that

She knows the real reason. It was never a secret but she could say this to the school girls i think
