Is it just me, or does everyone else feel as though they are pouring money down the drain? Every toy in my house is always out of batteries. Every electronic device in my house has just become obsolete. Every child has just outgrown his pants. You can relate, can't you?
I know I can't stop buying things, so one of my New Year's resolutions this year is to choose things that I can re-use, re-charge, refill in a larger proportion to the things I replace.
Reusing items such as shopping bags, food and drink containers and wrapping fabric, and refilling items such as dry-erase markers and ink cartridges simply saves money.
I have learned this lesson from my experience with AusPen refillable markers . It's a great example of a truly green alternative. AusPen markers are made of recycled materials, they use certified non-toxic ink, and they cost approximately 70% less than regular throw-away markers. The AusPen motto, Penfill Not Landfill says it all to me.
2011, give me your best. I'll give you mine.
