Kitchen Tip Tuesday: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

I like buying boxes of cereal really cheap but I hate filling the landfills with the garbage from them. We burn a lot of our paper products with the exception of a few items that we use as weed block on the garden like newspaper and animal feed bags (goat and chicken). So we burn the boxes unless the kiddos get a hold of them first to create things (which regularly happens). The waxy bags are great to press down rice krispie treats in a pan or reuse as storage bags. With the exception of freezer bags I rarely have to buy storage bags. The kiddos (and even Nana) are trained now to pack extra food from meals away in these bags. It takes like 3 weeks or so to get a habit formed? I'm glad we have. It's great for creation and it also saves money. Anyone else have any ideas that are along these lines?
