How did everyone do last week??
This weeks challenge. Buy something from a bulk bin and try to use a re-usable container.
Well we put our lap top chargers, phone chargers and rechargeable battery charger all on a strip in our room that is now only on when needed. Our VHS has been unplugged completely. The coffee pot is now only long enough to heat a pot of water and back off again.
I plan on going to a co-op tonight with the hubbs and kids to see what its like. A local my from my parenting group shops there. I already have my re-usable produce bags waiting to go in the car, and need to get out a container for some bulk foods.
Question - how does one do reusable containers for bulk items? I don't think our regular grocery (where we buy bulk dried fruit & oatmeal) has any sort of scale to tare out. Fortunately, we can recycle the bags after rinsing them, but curious for those of you that do use reusables at the store - what do you use?
I do need to get back into using our produce bags...
Last week - didn't do much. Most of our house was already on the power strip that gets turned off thing, but I can't say I did much to find more... :( Curious if anyone does that at work. I'm debating (would if I was positive no one would be using my computer while I was gone on leave).
I did okay last week - was basically more aware about unplugging things but I did leave some big things plugged in.
Excited for this week though!
