Act 273

Re-use

I know reducing and recycling are socially sexier but re-using has its advantages too. It saves you money.

I re-use many things. Plastic containers, glass jars, bread bags, ziplocks, plastic cups, party decorations, aluminum pans, twist ties, bottles, gift bags, greeting cards, single socks, elastics, file folders, envelopes. Plenty of things. They have much longer shelf life than we give them credit for. I used them for packing lunches, storing spices, household rags, home made gifts, office work, storage bins. Whatever works. And plenty of things we use have more than one purpose and more than one use.

I use to gaffaw at the practice. But now I see its sensible side. It might not save much. But it’s worth doing. Every little bit does help.
