Go to a plastic swapping partee...... We always have 'hood parties....BBQ, get together nights gong on. Usually everyone brings something - in a plastic container complete with plastic serving stuff and plastic fancy cups if they bring liquids of some sort. :) Then everyone (almost) conveniently leaves them at the host house. But sometimes the host pays-back by dolling out left overs in - guess what - yup those plastic containers everyone left last time. :)

They just keep getting recycled....... LOL

We decided to leave Alaska to move closer to family and to stay in our small RV until deciding on the exact location. Moving expenses would have been horrendous so we purged our 2700 sq. ft home to a large closet of totes. No furniture. Now that wasn't really the plan, to get that minimal, but we found our way through the process of garage sales, Facebook and donations. We made some money but mostly we found others who were either in need or in love with our stuff that we didn't truly need or love. We ended up camping out of the car for six weeks before leaving, and had to purge even more. I found 3 spatulas in our gear!
