TMR Frugal Living Tip #50

I hit a milestone today readers. This is my 50th TMR tip of the day. I really enjoy writing these, and I do apologize for not actually posting one each day. I'm trying really hard not to repeat any of these. Now, without further commentary, on to the actual tip.

Today's TMR thrifty living tip is bring your own containers when you go out to eat for leftovers. My friend and I were discussing this the other day. She has a favorite Chinese restaurant, but they put her leftovers in a styrofoam container. We know this isn't good for the environment. So she now brings in a small food container, which can be anything, that she has in her purse. They could care less, and it's another small way to help with trash reduction in our landfills.

Good idea, if you have a very large purse you are carrying :) I found a great idea for couponing easy to carry ..
