We had a mountain of aluminum cans and plastic bottles in our backyard that we had been saving for almost a year. Hubby promised the kids that if they helped to gather and sort them he would give them the money he got when he took them to the recycling center. Saturday we all pitched in to sort them and load them up the back of his truck. This is the amount of money that each of the kids received. Not too bad, considering we don't have CRV or anything here. Aluminum is only 70 cents a pound and plastic is 40 cents a pound. We ended up recycling around 14 pounds of cans and 15 pounds of plastic.This is the pile of tabs that we took off all those cans to give to Ronald McDonald House.
Anyone care to venture a guess as to how many tabs there are?

Wow! Now that's a pile! I think there are 359.
