What's in my Zero Waste Handbag?














What's in my Zero Waste Handbag:
  • Keep Cup: I have a tall Thermos style one that's great for keeping tea warm for hours, and a smaller one that fits under coffee machines at cafes.
  • Cutlery Roll: I have 2 sets of knives, forks and spoons that I roll up in a sandwich wrap and put in my handbag so I don't need to use plastic ones (if you don't have a dedicated wrap or roll, a tea towel or hand towel will do)
  • Drink Bottle: I fill it with water when I'm about to go out - and if I'm going somewhere I know I can refill at, I'll only fill it halfway at home so it doesn't make my bag too heavy
  • Hankie: I use one per day and then just throw it in the laundry with my clothes at shower time. I'm still working on converting the kids to hankies too, hopefully soon we'll all have switched!
  • Foldable shopping bag: I use the SAKITOME brand but any will do, or any other light bag you have can be folded and put into your handbag, no need to buy something new

Hope that helps you if you're thinking about trying more sustainable living options on a day to day basis :)

If you have any other ideas for me to include, let me know!

Declutter with me: My Tupperware cupboard!




Here's a simple way to store your Tupperware containers and lids - no need for fancy storage!
My container cupboard desperately needed a good clean out and declutter this week so I filmed the steps for you:

1. Empty everything out

2. Clean surfaces

3. Sort containers: I sorted into 3 groups (circle containers, square and rectangle ones) and put lids on as I went, so I could tell how many had bottoms and lids that went together. Once I had them matched, any odd ones went into a bag in the spare cupboard (so I could add their matching parts as I found them later) and the sets were ready to pack away!

4. Put away: I store my containers in stacks, with lids removed, so they don't get musty.

Hope that helps!

Night time showers vs morning showers


Night time showers vs morning showers - which team are you on?

I had the lovely Morgan from Salubrious Shack over to chat about it and we had so much fun!


Watch the video below to see which one I prefer and why - and the surprise 3rd option that can really influence your day too :)




What about you - are you a morning shower person, a night time shower fan, or do you do both?
