Great tip on the glass containers. I’m going to make an effort to do the same. I haven’t heard of the master recycler class but I am toying with the idea of a master composter class as we are definitely dedicating more effort to our compost this year. We’re also going to start raising chickens for eggs. My goal is to reduce our grocery bill by 20% during the summer as we get more food from our garden. Gretchen ThatMamaG January 16, 2012 at 5:42 pm Oooo, a master composter class – that sounds fun! Lauren Hobo_Mama January 21, 2012 at 8:06 pm I didn’t realize there were so many interesting master classes! 🙂 We’ve made the step into family cloth, and it’s going fairly well so far. I’d love to cut our paper consumption more as the year continues. I also would love to curb our plastic wrap use — we have glass containers, and I have some reusable stretchy lids to go on bowls and plates, but there’s the tricky bit of getting everyone in the family to use them… Gretchen ThatMamaG January 23, 2012 at 12:05 pm I’m glad I’m not alone, Lauren! Getting everyone on board is easier said than done! We just had a “discussion” over why I stopped using dryer sheets. Apparently there is a static issue with my sweet hubby’s basketball shorts 🙂 katie clothdiaperbabe January 22, 2012 at 4:05 pm cloth napkins, cleaning rags and diapers have saved us a bundle. Gretchen ThatMamaG January 23, 2012 at 12:06 pm Cloth napkins are on my sewing to-do list 🙂 lace fingerscrossed January 24, 2012 at 4:22 pm I need to find a local source for eggs. We had one but they don’t have chickens anymore. We’ve started using cloth napkins but not at every meal. I need to get everyone using them more. I need to make some more.
