I am surprised that I no longer miss my usual supply of small plastic baggies. The resource of empty cereal liners is amazing. There are so many options to replace the everyday plastic influx of new plastic bags – the ones I used to regard are non-expendable. Shocking how easy it was to overlook them as a resource.

Also, I am trying a new ceramic cup out. It looks like the usual disposable coffee cup but is ceramic with a washable silicone top and hand protector. (I know the silicone is plastic – but only one versus the many disposables!). It was only about $5 at Walgreen’s.

I am carrying this cup in my car. Now I just have to remember to bring it with me when I go to the store and want to buy a cup of Chai.
