Instead of buying new hand soap pumps every time I run out of soap I purchase a sturdy-looking foaming hand soap pump and keep a jug of Dr Bronner's Magic Hemp Soap (liquid hemp-based castile soap) around. When the pump gets empty I just rinse it out then fill 1/3 of the way with the Bronner's and the rest of the way with water because it can be diluted quite a bit. It gets hands clean with irritating or drying them out and lasts a long time! The almond kind smells great, too!

Portion - Snack Size Bags - As Soon As You Get Home
Whenever I buy a snack, for example, almonds, I weigh out and pre-package multiple snack size bags so I can just grab and go. Depending on the snack, I'll do 3-5 bags at a time. I'll throw one them in the car, purse, etc. When I'm out, I'll have something to keep me satisfied instead fast food.
Snack size bags are easier to take along instead of tupperware, but to be as eco-friendly as possible, I reuse the bags.
I've been using SparkGoodies as non-food rewards for non-scale AND scale victories. I usually pick out a gold star and list why I'm giving it to myself in the comment section. This keeps me from rewarding myself with food!
SparkGoodies are budget friendly -- they're free!
