Recycling and surviving
So I survived paperless!!!! One day at a time, that will save me alot of paper. My beautiful lil' sister, Lizard-Breath, decided it was time to make a difference and save the Earth and money, (I am convinced she is from Mars, of course I am from Venus) and she is right, Step 1. Do not buy anything new, only staples for day to day living (example foundation or wrinkle cream) Step 2. Recycle, if you can go to Starbucks, you can bring your own cup not get a paper one.( I did that today and was fine) Step 3.If you can make it, it's ok, (thank God I am learning to knit, I need a new sweatsuit) Step 4. Why not buy used toys? (the kids will drool on them, break them, leave them all over the house and then forget they even got it in the first place). Did you know that most used and consignment shops will let you bring clothes in and trade them for in-store credit?( Same with used book stores)With the over abundance of hormones we are shoving into our children daily with meat and dairy they just grow up so fast, you know? So try with us and see how long you can go without any new unnecessary purchases....and bring your own coffee cup to starbucks, or try not to go at all.......babysteps, babysteps...Don't forget to recycle your paper as well as your cans, glass and plastic as well.
