As I’m putting the finishing touches on my ebook, How to Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too — all about being a mother and pursuing your own passions — I’m reposting some of my favorite posts from the archives! If you want to be notified when the ebook is ready, just submit your email address here.
I learned this little trick in the 7th grade from Mrs. Riley, the headmistress at our school, and it’s one I still use today.
We use reusable shopping bags when we remember them, and we take a lot of the plastic bags back to Wal-Mart to be recycled, but we also like to keep some of them around:
:: In the diaper bag for dirty diapers, trash or accidents
:: In the kitchen for scraps or as quick carry-alls
:: In the picnic basket for dirty dishes and trash
:: In the car for trash or miscellaneous items that need to be brought in
Quick and easy (once you get the hang of it!), and they take up so little space this way!
