Environmentally Friendly Ways to Discard Your Clutter

Yesterday was Earth Day and that made me think about how decluttering your home often results in a lot of discarding and throwing things out. In the spirit of being more environmentally friendly, I started looking for ways to reduce how much of my clutter gets thrown away and increase how much is recycled or given new life. I wanted to share a few of the websites and resources I found.

Breaking My Bargain Shopping Addiction Part 2

breaking my bargain shopping addictionSo today was the big day – I went to Target for their big “Spend $50 on groceries, get a $10 gift card” deal. I went in with a list of foods we buy every single week – eggs, cream cheese, butter, bagged salad, etc. I also brought a list of foods we buy regularly but not every week such as tuna, mayonnaise, and string cheese. I printed out a few coupons and we headed out the door at 8am.

We hit $35 and I realized that it was probably a good idea to go ahead and do the deal. I had to resist the temptation of buying things just because I “had a coupon” or it would push us closer to the $50 threshold.

Konmari is Helping Me Break My Bargain Shopping Addiction

If anyone really knows me, they’ll know I’m a couponer. I LOVE a good deal and if I can get something for free, I often do. But going through Konmari is changing all that. I’m finding it difficult to buy things that are on sale because I have to ask myself if buying that item sparks joy. Most times it does not. I did a “deal” a few weekends ago and shortly after I got home, I started to regret it.

The deal revolved around getting 2 boxes of trash bags (we only had cheap ones that did NOT spark joy) and other cleaning supplies. The deal required spending $40 to get $10 off with a store coupon but it also allowed manufacturer’s coupons and other store coupons. I went in expecting to get only essentials – trash bags, toilet paper, and paper towels. But when I realized that the coupon I had for toilet paper was expired, I went off book. Read On…
