  • Reflection Question
    Lifestyle Buy Only What I Need
    As you have reduced your spending, what have you noticed about your 'health and safety' purchasing habits? How might this change your longer term purchasing decisions?

    Went shopping for the first time in 2 weeks. Bought what we needed for the next 2 weeks. One jar in plastic. Everything else in cans. Bought all veggies loose, without plastic bags. I never use them. Saves a lot of plastic bags that way.

    Went out and picked up trash from the streets this morning in my neighborhood. Plastic and cigarette butts were definitely the majority of the mess.

    I went shopping a week ago. Since then, I haven't bought anything. I joined AdoptOneBlock:Oregon and am picking up trash in my neighborhood at least once a week. At least 50% of it has been plastic.

    Stocked up shopping last week. I shouldn't need to go for 2 weeks. At least.

    There are a few items that are difficult to find in glass. I bought laundry detergent in cardboard, mayo in glass.
