Trying to reduce waste

July 17th, 2008 at 05:40 pm

Well, I'm sick of how a lot of things in my life are, so I'm looking to make some small changes - and save money! I'm trying really hard to break my habit of using paper plates. Tough to do as I've been using them my whole life! I am making some progress though and eating some chips off a real plate right now. My decision mostly stems from not wanting to spend money on things these days. Yes, I've gotten to the point I am too cheap to buy paper plates!! They don't seem necessary anymore. Besides, I have some CUTE vintage tupperware plates that I just LOVE - and never use. So I'm trying to use these to eat from when I normally would have used a paper plate. The fact that I love the plates is kind of an incentive to use them. I really need to hide the paper plates though!!

It's a small change, but I feel good about it.

    Good for you! A change for the environment and your wallet. Those vintage tupperware plates sound nice!

    A fun project. Check and see how much you save a month on paper plates by using your tupperware plates and pay yourself. It will give you quite a boost.

    lol... Unfortunately no big money saver here! I'm usually frugal by nature and I was paying, at the most, 1.5 cents per plate. So assuming between the two of us we'd use 60 per month, we're looking at a maximum savings of 90 cents per month. That's on the high side as I don't even think we were using that many.

    Thanks for the comment as I was just off to get breakfast and this was a reminder to grab the tupperware! Smile

    Good job! What you're doing helps your wallet and helps the environment. If a lot of people made little changes we could really come a long way.
