I’ve been paying closer attention to how much my groceries cost, and was astounded to realize that the trash bags I buy at Aldi were $6.29 for 36! That’s a lot of money to be ‘throwing away’. I am stepping up my recycling efforts, including the reuse of the bags themselves as much as possible. I use them to hold my recycled plastics, and stuff headed to Salvation Army (I still donate goods, but don’t shop there for now). When it is time to dump those, I’ll be emptying the bags and putting them back to work.
Matthew 6:19-20 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
