List of things I miss:

  1. Chips.


Weird. I thought that I was going to have a real list happen. My mind went blank just now.
Perhaps I got used to my current plastic free possibilities and don’t feel the sense of lacking any longer.


I just miss chips so much that it took over my brainpower as soon as I thought of those crunchy little delights.


My mom is pretty cool and bought me a mandolin (not the music kind) slicer so that I can thinly slice whatever I want (potatoes, yams and beets) and then MAKE CHIPS.

Any bets on how long it will take me to get around to doing that?

**UPDATE** Celine and I made chips! We sliced potatoes, added oil and salt then tossed ’em in the oven. 12-15 minutes later we tasted our plastic free chips at the same time. There was cheering and jumping.

  1. those dang plastic bags from bulk sections.. if you can name an invention that gets those out of the picture- I will buy one-no maybe ten and never go back.
    OR totally biodegradable bags…but that feels like a bandaid approach….any ideas? Great work ladies!

    • At the Market on Yates I’ve ducked over to the bakery section and used their brown paper bags to put my bulk items into.

      But true, if they aren’t *there* and visible, we don’t think of the option we can’t see (usually). Maybe next shopping day I will position a stack of bags next to the plastic ones?

      I try to lead by example with highly visible cloth and paper bags

  2. That’s fantastic. I was wondering how to get away with bulk buying without those dang plastic bags…
