have you seen this blog? The Zero Waste Home lots of good ideas. I don't have access to a bulk grocer like she does, but still, some great ideas that could be implemented. And I'm always looking for ways to reduce the amount of disposables we need- saves money! She goes shopping for clothes twice a year, and always buys used. Our thrift stores around here must not have the kind of selection her's does. I'm jealous! :lol: The inventory of clothes would be really helpful though... help organize my mind and only buy what i need. It would have to be on an as needed by season basis, instead of twice a year. I need to start saving glass jars and jugs, and searching thrift stores for them. I can't go to a bulk grocer, but I might could buy meat that way. At the deli, or a grocery store where they cut the meat and you pick the cuts you want. Check with the manager and see if they'd put it in my jar instead of plastic.
