    Food Shop the Bulk Bins
    How has buying bulk impacted the quality of the food you receive? Why do you think our society relies more on prepackaged foods rather than buying in bulk?

    This is easier now that I am going to the grocery store and not ordering things online.

    I always start in the same places - my kitchen and my bedroom.  These areas are actually in good shape and so I don’t find much clutter there.  I need to start in the basement where there is a lot of clutter to clear out.

    Has separating your plastic bags for recycling helped you identify how you might reduce how many you have? What are you doing differently now?

    I have the cloth bags but some of the veggies get soft in them.  Also when I open the refrigerator, I don't notice the vegetables in the cloth bags.  Then I realized that I could use plastic bags and containers that I've washed and saved to store the veggies.
