Sustainability 2022

 Once upon a time sustainability was the buzz word of the year. Not so much anymore although I hear it from time to time. Maybe because the cost of living is increasing at a rate that although many anticipated but never thought would come as quick as it has. That being said bringing costs down could be great for those who are sustainable in many areas of their lives. 

Don't get me wrong I am in no way the poster woman for everything 'green' and sustainable but I do my bit when and if I can. So here are a few tips of mine that can create a more sustainable and frugal life. 

Clearouts and cleanses

Not only are they great for the mind, body and soul but are excellent for putting money back into your pocket. There may be an area within your home that could do with a clear out. I recently did one for books and DVDs. Surprisingly enough there are people out there ready to buy DVDs. There are places where you can sell and buy a bargain from VINTED and DEPOP. Not only can you sell items that are in a decent condition and get some money from it. You can also gift or recycle certain items too. 

Glass jars

Another more obvious way in being some what sustainable is by using glass jars. You do not have to buy glass jars but can reuse the condiment/sauce jars. I use old jam jars to create my chia seed breakfasts. Or you can use the glass jars to have a warm drink. Not only that you can use glass jars to store other things. 

Say NO to plastic

Keep plastic use to a minimum. If you do try and use it as much as you can before getting rid of it. If you have children collect the clean bottles or food containers and take them into the local primary school. They always love those types of items for the junk modelling. 


There maybe items that you are not sure what to do with. Most items used now can be recycled. 

How have you started your sustainable living?
