On the plane to California I read an article in Sunset magazine about a Zero Waste house. They have no trash, no garbage, nothing, zero. I've been thinking about it a lot since and I'm sure my family is sick of me bringing it up. I'm fascinated. They are even minimal recyclers. It's incredible. Certainly it's something to be proud of when you do everything in your power to reduce your carbon footprint, but I'm also in love with how simple and clean their house is. I keep thinking about this image from their pantry and how much I want those glass jars. I love when cupboards and closets have consistent and same organizing method.
I'm on a hunt to find these jars and to eventually and gradually create the above. Shim and Sons just posted about these jars she purchased that are so perfect. I love the clear glass, the size, and the orange peeking out. She got them from Canoe. I then found some French Le Parfait glass jars on Overstock and Amazon. Pretty good deals. Ideally I'd be bringing them to the grocery store to get filled. But goodness! that takes pre-thought and planning. Impressive life.
