As I shifted my mindset more towards zero-waste living, I often had (and still have) the urge to purchase things, and often stalk the grocery-restaurant at Mahota in Singapore to try to purchase some.
More often than not I don’t buy anything, mainly because I don’t have the budget for it (saving up for renovations etc). So I scrounged around my house and here’s what I have…for free.
Okay so the Kyoto Starbucks tumbler isn’t actually free. We (my then-bf and I) bought matching ones on our first trip to Japan, but I never used it. I managed to unearth it just yesterday and it’ll be great to bring to work and drink. All. The. Tea.
The Tau bottle came from my sister, and I saw it discarded by the sink… so naturally I waited a week or two and then pounced on it and brought it home. The only two things I don’t like about this bottle is that the capacity is limited (330ml) and I keep having to refill it via the very small opening, causing a lot of spilling.
The metal spoon and fork and chopsticks I acquired from my maternal home over the weekends, and they’ve been quite useful especially when I go out for dinner before Japanese class.
The last spoon was a media gift from Anantara, and I kept it because I like it so much.
