I have a love-hate relationship with TJs too. I don't go often, or didn't until recently, because I'm not that enamored with what they have to offer and the plastic produce has always bothered me. Plus they aren't very convenient for me to get to and since I don't own a car, that's always first and foremost these days. They do, however, have really cheap decent wine and that is my downfall. On one of these rare trips, I also picked up some goat yogurt for my youngest son, who doesn't do cows milk yet and had rejected all other goat products thus far. He loved it, and won't touch the goat yogurt from the local place I usually shop. I don't know what it is about the TJ's yogurt that makes all the difference. So now, about once every week or two I buy the yogurt in the plastic container, at the place far away. And usually pick up some wine and chocolate too... maybe eventually I'll figure out making my own yogurt and he'll actually like it. (Now to get my sister's goats producing more milk so I can get a regular supply!)

I am lazy and try to be as natural/plastic free as I can with my personal care. So, I have an 'all-purpose' salve I use. It works for lotion, hair paste, lip balm, and sooths cuts and scrapes too. Only three ingredients, I use: beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil. You can add essential oils, but I haven't done that yet. I originally made them in a mold that was silicone, but have now bought metal tins and it can be poured straight into there. The tins I use are small so they are easy to throw in a purse/backpack. I almost always have some with me!
