I’m making some progress. I decided to start by changing our kid dishes and cups. I had been using Take n Toss Plastic silverware (and reusing it, not tossing them) and plastic plates that I got for a buck at Walmart. We have a ton of Gerber sippy cups. I pulled all of those things out and put them in a box.
A couple of weeks ago I ordered 3 Safe Sippys from Jillian’s Drawers for ten bucks a piece. Apparently they are switching to a new version and you can pick up the original version for a steal. I wouldn’t pay more than $10. Jillians Drawers is out of them now, but you can still find them Here. I’ve been managing with just the 3, which is a big change from how many sippys we were using before. I think that when the twins are at that stage, I’ll probably order a couple more.
For plates I ordered Kidishes from B.Granola, a super cute little shop that I came across. I got 8 plates and 4 bowls. I was a bit skeptical at how well glass dishes would work for B-Bear. He has been known to chuck his dishes across the room. So far these are holding up amazingly and are way classier looking than the old plastic ones we were using. I actually was sure they were broken when they arrived because UPS sure did a number on the box, but they were not disturbed in the least.
There are a couple of things I’m having trouble with. I thought maybe my readers would have some good ideas.
- Garbage Bags…I could always use paper, but that’s no good either.
- Saran Wrap, It’s so convenient to use to cover casserole dishes, unfinished lunches, etc.
What are you having trouble with? Maybe together we can find some solutions.
