You might be curious about how I managed to get a wedding dress for $100. I got it from an ad on Craigslist. I’m not sure how much it is used outside of the States, […]
Do-it-yourself is always a good way to ensure that you know what’s inside. I’ve been looking at various DIY skin care products because my skin is sensitive and trying new products gets to be quite […]
This is the place where it gets easy to spend hundreds. There are many great companies that I’ve seen creating vegan leather, recycled shoes, or sustainable cotton products but they can be quite pricey. I […]

This is one of the trickiest places to minimize waste for me. If you want something organic, there’s twice as much plastic involved. Feeling lazy and want to pick up something easy…plastic. The majority of […]
My most recent realization is that we go through sooo many tissues, especially now that it is winter and your nose tends to run whether you’re sick or not.
So I started thinking. Old school handkerchiefs could work, but my experience has been that you blow your nose once and the entire thing is soaking wet.
It really crossed my mind because of a Facebook ad for this Kickstarter, The Reusable Tissue Pack. This seemed a little over the top, having to keep track of all the used tissues. Upon further investigation I found The Hanky Book. I plan to buy or make one of my own at some point, but I’m still skeptical about whether the rest of the book will stay dry after one use. I found a few more on Etsy, but they weren’t finished as nicely as The Hanky Books.
Have you said goodbye to single use tissues? What do you use instead?
