Comments Off on Fantastic reducing, reusing & recycling ideas from December

Last month one of the biggest discussion points was how to get into the habit of taking packed lunches ; this month it’s how to freshen up a tired winter coat . I only asked the question on Tuesday but we’ve already had some great responses – and an impromptu confessional session about the size of our wardrobes! Thanks to Jayne, Linda, bookstorebabe, Su and Alice! Unsurprisingly, we’ve been talking a lot about Christmas too – Anna suggested a great modern recycled gift wrap idea – using brown paper or foreign language newspapers while Pauline suggested decorating shoeboxes to reuse for gifts year after year. Cipollina posted a fun Christmas basket made from old Christmas cards and when it came to ideas for using up leftover turkey, I had the bookstorebabe at bacon croutons
