Which common disposable items do you avoid buying and choose a reuse option instead?

It’s a weird world that we live in. We spend money on items that are meant to be used only once and then throw them away. Since “away” is really just under our feet and I personally like to save my hard earned money, I avoid buying disposables and choose inexpensive or free reuse options instead. For example, I use washable rags instead of paper towels, glass jars or plastic containers instead of plastic food bags, and bread bags for trash.

    Paper napkins are easy to replace with fabric napkins. I have a sewing machine, so I make them myself. I haven't tried replacing the paper towels with un-paper towels yet, but that's on my list. Next DIY project- reusable produce bags.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole
    thing without having side-effects , people could take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
