Going Green In The New Year

With the upcoming holidays, you may find yourself with an overload of shopping bags, gift wrap, and tissue paper. During December, most of us are frantically hustling about doing last minute Christmas shopping for the kids and significant others. After awhile, room and space starts to run out as these bags pile up. We start to think about trashing these bags, but realize that clear plastic bags and such are not biodegradable. Thus, it would not be good for the overall environment if trashed like last night’s cardboard pizza box. Fret no more there are plenty of creative ideas to help you to turn these annoying shopping bags into a fun project.

Pick a secure location. The basement of the house where your friend is renting a room may be cheap, but it’s not secure against burglars, dampness, bugs, or other tenants who could “borrow” a lamp or take a liking to your skis. Plan to put your valuables somewhere with restricted access, like a storage facility. Summer storage specials for college students make this an affordable option.

Keep markers, pens and glue sticks inside plastic boxes in case they leak. If you don’t have plastic boxes store them in anti static plastic bags. If they leak they won’t ruin other things and you can pitch out the container or bag.

Apart from the theme, you also have to take into consideration the number of girls and boys who will attend the party. Ensure that you have party favors that you can give to all attendees so no one will feel left out. This means that you should prepare items that will be suitable for girls and boys. For instance, jewelry sets and hair accessories can be given to the little girls, while building blocks and cars can be provided for the boys.

Have you noticed how many products contain lemon? Lemons have natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties that can be used all over the house. Add lemon to white vinegar to disinfect the bathroom, refrigerator, countertops, or whatever you are disinfecting. Squeeze it into a dishpan filled with warm water and a dash of white vinegar to clean your dishes. Add some baking soda to the mix to scour pots and pans.

Older kids will also need a more dependable backpack; something that has padded shoulder straps will help them haul around heavy books but if they are really bogged down with texts, notebooks and supplies you might want to try something on wheels. Sure, it might make them look like they are headed to the airport but it will help with sore muscles and an aching back. If they are going to be taking up a sport you will also need to see if they are going to require extra clothes, a gym back or other essentials that the school might not provide. Make sure you leave an extra $50.00 to $100.00 in your back to school budget for things that pop up at the last minute.
