Even today I had to stop myself from more consumption! I talked myself out of it each time, I think this is going to be harder than I thought.
I threw the dog's frisbee over the fence of a school. While close I couldn't reach it. I passed by the pet store and they were closed, but they did have another flying squirrel frisbee. But for the lunch walk (we have May 1 off today) I went back to the park with some BBQ tongs and was able to reach it!
I left my power cord at work for my laptop. I'm at 11% battery and it is only 1:40pm. I planned to work for a few hours. Husband said I should just go an buy a new cord as this isn't the first time I left my cord at work. I decided that I work too much anyways on my days off. Not buying a cord, unplugging instead.
Reading the BBC article on the unexamined amounts of plastics in women's menstruation supplies. I found myself checking Taobao (Chinese version of Amazon.com) if they sell Softcup, my go to before moving here. But I checked my girlie supplies and have enough to last the month. Not buying back up, as much as I wanted to for the environment.
I might need add to the below list since this is the first year of living in this new country. Who knows what May might bring? But here's my list!
