Be creative with cartons
You know that egg cartons belong in the recycle bin or on the compost heap. But why not keep them a little longer? Use them as a seedling starter or to store your Christmas decorations.
Prevent waste; use products that you can refill. Pepper and salt mills, a reusable water bottle, a lunch box, storage jars or a nice coffee mug.
Keep the leftovers
Don't throw away leftover food! Instead, keep leftovers in reusable tupperware and jars. If you use tupperware that you can heat, you also save on washing-up. Bonus!
Do you have too much stuff that you don't use or wear anymore? Your friends probably do too! Organise an exchange party and give your things a second lease in life in a home where they might be more appreciated. It's fun, economical, environmentally friendly and a nice excuse to tidy out your cupboards and drawers.
No too much
Measure foods out, such as rice and pasta, before cooking. In doing so, you won't cook (or eat) too much. Another tip: store vegetable leftovers in the freezer until you have enough for a hearty vegetable soup.
