I hear people say they eat more than they want because they don't want to "waste" food or just throw it out. It's not good enough for the trash can but it's okay for your body? Treat yourself better than the trash can, and don't eat something just because you don't want to throw it away!

i never throw away a clean bag - whether it is plastic, paper, shopping, cloth, cellophane or foil. large bags comforters come in stores summer clothes. shipping bags from large items-cover lawn cushions for the winter, pillow bags are heavy mil great for garbage-line garbage cans
. there are hundreds of uses - and i estimate i have saved over $5000. not buying household bags.
We have a family of 5, so we end up with a lot of plastic bags from the grocery store. We bring them back and reuse them at the store, some stores will pay you for reusable bags (Price Chopper will credit you $.03 a bag). One trip to the store will credit me $.45, doesn't seem like a lot, but in a year, that's almost $24, and that's just for one trip a week!! We stick them in the small garbage cans (instead of buying little garbage bags). Huge savings!!
We use them instead of packing peanuts when shipping items. Why pay for something, when we have it already?? And I feel good about being able to reduce, reuse and recycle, along with the money I save.
