I am entering 2019 with new habits thanks to my daughter, Karlene. About 9 months ago she started using fewer single-use plastic straws and encouraged me to utilize reusable shopping bags to avoid getting plastic ones.
When it was time to go back-to-school shopping, Karlene didn’t ask for new clothes or a set of colorful pens.
Instead, she asked for a reusable spork and metal straws with silicone tips. Thanks to a quick search on Amazon.com, I was able to make this request a reality for less cash out of pocket than I expected.
