    By far, the two main things I throw away are grocery packaging and kleenex. I haven't tackled the food packaging yet, but am trying an experiment by ordering some old-fashioned cotton handkerchiefs. So far they work just as well as kleenex and don't seem to be any less sanitary since I just toss them in the laundry when I'm done.

    I started trying to cut back on disposable items last year by purchasing cotton napkins and dishtowels instead of paper ones. This has been a great opportunity to take it a step further- last week I bought a bamboo toothbrush and compostable floss, which work just as well as the plastic versions.
