If you've moved away from using dryer sheets in favor of the newer, more environmentally-friendly tumbler balls, you can still put those dryer sheets to good use. They work GREAT as disposable (or even reusable) dustcloths. They also work as mosquito repellent -- just rub over your clothes and skin and you're all set! You can also use them in dresser drawers, closets and even inside shoes to help keep them smelling fresh!
I got some reusable, BPA-free wide mouth plastic bottles by Rubbermaid (dish washer safe too!). I fill them all up with water and keep in the fridge. Then I got some Ocean Spray singles that I add... my fave flavor is Blueberry-Lemonade and Cranberry-Pom. Only 5 cals each, but I drink lots more water now, and I'm being environmentally friendly.
I got 6 bottles at BJ's. Don't remember the price, but was inexpensive. The tops screw on, and there's a flip top lid for sports-bottle-like drinking. There's also a ring you can clip the bottle on to your belt or bike.
Oil spray bottle reduces fat, more environmentally friendly
I bought a hand pumped spray bottle that can be filled with vegetable oil and used in place of oil spray in the can, as a non-stick coating. It is also a great way to use a bit of oil when preparing food - you can spray vegetables and such before cooking, to add only the minimal amount of oil. This is also very environmentally friendly as you just refill and reuse as required!
