I have today off just to have the day off. I intend to do some cleaning and cooking. I also might have to do a little working for my job. I get 28 days off a year but I'm so busy that its hard to use them. I decided to take a random day off to try to settle in a little bit more.
On Monday, I was at a meeting with my coworkers. One mentioned that she had bought her daughter a Halloween costume from a boutique in California. I asked another coworker if she had any old costumes from her daughter who is now 10. She said that she did and would take a look. Yesterday she brought me in 3 costumes including a pumpkin one that will fit Lil Punk. Yay! That is money saved but also another costume won't end up in a landfill.
I've come to realize with moving and getting settled just how much stuff we have. We want it, we buy it, we use it and we throw it. It is all just a huge waste. I'm not always that green but I want to be more so because it seems like a shame to have so much stuff rotting away in a landfill.
Does anybody else think about this when they're looking to buy something new yet again?
