I love being to reuse, repurpose or compost items that come into my home. There’s nothing I hate more than producing waste, we try to avoid products with excess packaging and focus on buying products with compostable packaging or no packaging.
The whole grains I buy from the local mill for the animals around here comes in big brown paper bags. These are 100% paper, no plastic layer nested in between the paper like most feed bags. What I love about these is that they’re the exact width of my garden pathways.
They lay perfectly down in the walkways and act as a mulch, keeping weeds at bay and keeping my shoes a little less muddy. The worms also love them, as do the snakes. Right now I’m saving them up in the garage for using next spring. I love it when I can use something I have on hand in the garden.
