Some of these answers might be in Beth’s book, which I’m still reading, but if anyone has had […]

Also, I’ve heard of people washing and reusing ziploc bags, but I haven’t been able to get the bags clean enough to want to reuse them. Any suggestions for doing that?

Will be making some shopping bags for the family to save them from using plastics. I plan to line them with plastic tablecloths that I picked up at Goodwill. Does buying plastics and […]
