If you have been a Mission to Save reader for a little while, you know that my family loves to think outside the recycle bin by challenging ourselves to repurpose items.
We used to (ok we still do) give my FIL a hard time about his extreme re-use philosophy. He finds new uses for everything- even the bag from inside the cereal box. And why not!? We have to put aside our pride and realize that empty bread bag would be perfect (and free) to bring your sandwich to work. The empty shredded cheese bag has a great zip closure, so store the bar cheese in it. Getting the picture? It’s all about stretching our mind to think of new uses for these items. Not only will it be helping to “save the Earth” but save us money too!
