Zero Waste

I have a love/hate relationship with the trash can. I love having a clean home, but I hate the amount of trash we produce each week.


Zero Waste is the idea that you can live without producing any trash.

Recently, Kroger announced that they were going to be phasing out plastic bags for reusable grocery bags. While I take our plastic bags back to the store to be recycled, I could save the effort by just using the reusable bags that I already have.

Starbucks plans to eliminate single-use straws in the next few years. I need to remember to take our reusable coffee and frappuccino cups when we have our weekly Starbucks trip after flute lessons.

While I don’t know if I’m disciplined enough to live a zero waste lifestyle, I know that I can definitely use less single-use products in my life.


LuLaRoe Schooled


It’s hard to believe that the kids will be going back to school soon. The stores already have aisles of crayons, glue, and notebooks. They’re starting to carry more jeans and fall type clothes. While it’ll still be warm, summer for our family is quickly coming to an end.


LuLaRoe also recently announced that kids items will be on sale for back-to-school. This is pretty exciting because Lily recently outgrew most of her leggings from last year, and her style has changed a bit.

I currently have Adeline, Azure, Bianka, Gracie, Monroe, Sariah, Scarlett, and Sloan. Also, I carry leggings in S/M, L/XL, and Tween. Both in regular and Disney.

TinCaps WON! Continue reading
