what have you given up for good?

rhonda over at down to earth posted this question and i thought it was a good reflection. this list is a list of what i've personally given up, even though other family members may still be resistant to it. these are choices i alone have made. this is a list of things i will choose to never purchase for my own use again:

1. paper products: toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, moon pads and tampons, wrapping paper
2. laundry detergent and chemically laden cleaning supplies
3. feed lot meat and caged eggs
4. bottled water
5. soap

are there 5 things you've given up good? let me know, i'd love to see!

Our list would be a lot like yours

1) Womanly supplies- I have and LOVE my Diva Cup!

2) Toilet paper. There's no clean like actually clean.

3) Soap

4) High Fructose Corn Syrup, other disgusting crap they put in 'food'

5) Now I can't think of anything for #5.

There are many things... we never buy chicken and if we're out, we do without. This applies to a lot of meat or vegetables and so on.

There are many things I am in the process of giving up and weaning my kids from:
1) womanly supplies - love my diva, encouraging my teens to switch.
2) HFCS, aspirtane, etc.
3) paper towels, plates, cups
4) laundry soap/cleaners
5) No store bought eggs as long as I can keep my hens!

Soon I hope to add soap to the list!

what do you use for toilet paper?

i use cloth wipes...i make them about 4 x 4 and zig zag stitch the edges out of old flannel sheets. they are quite soft and do a much better job than paper. not to mention, if your kids are messy poopers like sage is, they hold up much better when wetted down than tp does!
