Yesterday I went for my first zero waste shopping, I got just few things that we need it and spend very little money, I also had a coupon so that helped. Normally I would go to a grocery store and come back with bags of pasta and cans of beans and boxes of cereal and whatever else was on sale and then I would have piles of boxes of things and my cupboards would be filled with food but also with waste. I thing this zero waste will save us some money and cupboard space. I am very exited about this new challenge, so far so good.  Besides my bags I used few jars and I got some dry papaya, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, caraway seeds and chia seeds. In bags I got couscous, puffed quinoa cereal, bay leaves and raw sunflower seeds.


  1. Did you take your jars to the store? I don't really have a bulk store to shop, but I like your idea! I know what you mean about all the canned food and waste... plus it makes my wire shelves so heavy, they start leaning due to the extra weight.

    1. I took the jars with me and the cashier weight them before I fill them.

  2. It is so easy to spend on things that you don't really need. You just by them because they are a good deal.
