I want to share some tips with you on how I save money—and who doesn’t want to these days—while being kind to our environment.

1. Save cardboard, address stickers, and toilet rolls for art and craft projects
Growing up in Germany, I remember that my mother always collected little boxes and toilet rolls and would drop them off at our kindergarten when she had saved up a whole bag. We would use those materials for art and craft projects. Do people do that here as well? Landon is a little too young for elaborate art projects, but I have been saving cardboard and all kinds of things for his future craft projects. I have one designated box in the office for these supplies, and whenever I get another 50 address stickers from a charity that I will never use, or junk mail that includes a “Yes” sticker or a postcard with an animal on it, I throw those in that craft box. Oftentimes those address stickers have pretty little pictures on them, so I figure I just cut off the address part and Landon can sticker away—under my supervision, just in case he feels like eating them. While he has fun making something for Nani and Opa, I am recycling paper and saving on art and craft supply costs. (Read more)
