@BethTerry @yuki1 But why I didn't think of that! It's a wonderful idea! I just have to label them and find a place to store them. Thanks a lot! 


There is no worries with my liquid soap, I buy it in bulk but I finally made the switch because I found soap bars without any perfume or essential oils. I also hope it will help my husband's dry skin.

I don't think I will be participating, I don't have facebook and I really don't see what I could do more. But I just wanted to say that I'm really jealous of you people with bulk stores. A new bulk store has open where I live but they don't accept that we use our own containers. They have these HUGE plastic bags, even for the spices!


I will do something more though, just not before the end of the month. I will switch from liquid soap to bar soaps! Finally! I know I'm late. I already bought them but they won't arrive until August. I can't wait to try them. Also, if someone has an idea where I can buy a soap holder that has not any plastic in it, I welcome ideas. I found a magnetic soap holder on Amazon but it has some plastic. The metal ones won't fit in my shower.

I just wanted to say that you saved one of my hoodie! The zipper broke suddenly and if I didn't remember your post, I would have toss it. I feel so powerful now that I can repair zippers (even though it was so easy hehe)

My boyfriend took more than 8 hours repairing our printer. He's so patient! I told him I would not have had that patience. He literally saved our printer!

On my repair to-do list is most of our reusable grocery bags, I just never take the time to sew the seams back together. There is also a pair of my boyfriend's jeans but I need to buy ironing patches. There are just so many things that we need to repair but we don't because we live without, sigh! I see a laundry basket in the featured articles and we are using our broken laundry basket for 7 years now.

Totally off-topic but it's the same problem with dairy. I'm not eating dairy anymore but when I was, I tried to buy organic dairy because I thought the animals would be treated better (and also because it would be better for my health) but that's not the case at all. Even if the milking cow are treated better, they still need to have calves for them to produce milk and most of them are sold to veal producers. These veal producers can have the worst kind of treatment for the calf. Let me tell you I stopped eating veal at once when I learned about what they do.

@BethTerry @yuki1 Ahh that's what I thought was the case, I don't understand why there is such a law! What reasons do they give, do you know? I live in Quebec by the way.

I also thought that lack of fibres was my problem, but it was not. It was as simple as stopping eating dairy. Now, all people are different, so I can't guarantee anything. ^.^ 

As for prescription pills, what works for me is reusing the same bottle each month I buy it. Maybe it's not everywhere they agree to do that?

Also the brand of supplement I buy comes in a glass bottle and metal cap but sadly the paper label is lined with plastic.

If you slice it yourself it's really hard but all the bakeries I know offer sliced loafs. Is it still too thick? You should ask for the thin setting, there is normally two settings.

Anyway, I agree with your family and I can't eat sandwiches with sliced loafs. My solution is pita. It's harder to find without plastic though. I hope I helped!

I would use it to freeze muffins. Right not I use an old plastic tupperware because I was sure there were no containers big enough on the market! You can also use it to freeze cookies or berries.
