We have started to use reusable items in the last year and now we are limiting going to shops I’m grateful I have:


San Pro
Micro fibre cloths
Cheeky Wipes - baby wipes
Dr Bronners Castile liquid (for hand soap - not technically reusable but goes along way)
Soap nuts (as back up for if we run out of washing powder)

How about you?

My wardrobe grin

Cloth nappies and cheeky wipes, my boobs for feeding, san pro for me although my periods haven’t returned yet and microfibre cloths for cleaning.

Although the boobs are only good for feeding the baby.

@whitevixen I’m also breastfeeding and had a fleeting thought about whether we could use it for tea if we ran out of milk grin

Swedish dish cloths.
Pack of 10, a clean one every day.
The used ones dry overnight so don't go manky and get chucked in with towels at the end of the week

@ssd I’m mainly living in leggings and joggers probably need to try real clothes on at some point to make sure I don’t expand in to my elastic waistbands grin

Sanpro (my moon cup is my life saver atm)
Breastfeeding (DS is 15 months and still loves the boobs)
Guinea pig fleece bedding (don't have to worry about buying wood shavings)

And technically shouldn't be on this list, but a proper hiking style baby carrier. I can walk a good distance and DS is happy for ages, plus close to me and up high so he can't touch everything.

Lots of dusters and cleaning cloths
Washable Sanpro
Beeswax wraps
Lots of Tupperware

Also glad that I tend to buy things in bulk when on offer - am starting to run those stocks down somewhat at the moment - both because I don’t want to go out but also because everything is full price in the supermarkets to discourage bulk buying.
