It has been awhile since I have blogged about plastic. And even longer since I blogged about my great weakness for containers. First off, in my defense, quite a few months ago, I made a commitment to no longer buy plastic if I can help it. Although, I did not get rid of what I had, I stuck to my commitment. (except with a momentary weakness at Cosco for cereal containers....my bad!) So while going through my plastics, I tried to give the same diligence I give the rest of the house and items. I really have no problem with getting rid of things we don't use. I will give them to someone I know, Goodwill, or recycle. And I do use the plastic I already have for LL's lunch. Where he works, because it is a secured facility, does not allow glass. I figure, better to use and reuse what I have, rather then it end up in the landfill.
So I got my plastics in order. Made sure any residue of gluten is off. But then comes my real weakness. I can not seem to get rid of any plastic lid. This is my way of thinking. What if I just misplaced the container and it shows up..........what if it is a lid to someone elses container that they accidently left.........what if I can use this lid for some other purpose! I can't do it. A normal person would match their containers with the lids and throw the rest out or recycle. Well I never said I was normal. Just can not do it. So, Calling all out to anyone who has ever been to my house bearing food........come see if I have your lid. You might just find Pay Dirt.
