Why oh why do kitties eat plastic fleece? Last August I retired a holey red fleece blanket  that the kitties had been chowing down on. Now, here’s the blanket we’ve used as a throw on our sofa for several years. I bought it long before I began avoiding new plastic. 100% polyester. Yummy!
Here’s the tally:
Items bought before the plastic project began:
New plastic waste this week:
That’s it! Only 4 items this week, and only 1 of which was new.
After my Guilt & Gratitude post , Michael and I had a conversation about buying new things. He’s even more frugal than I am when it comes to avoiding new purchases, preferring to support thrift stores and often bringing home the rejected items that neighbors leave out “for free.” I told him about The Compact . I kind of feel like we already live a Compact-like life without joining or verbally committing to anything.
This week, I have another story to share about finding a way to avoid a new purchase. And this one doesn’t involve any guilt at all.
