TK Maxx Zero Waste Finds!

I stop into TK Maxx every now and again; I like a good rummage. I have found all manner of Zero Waste items here. My top tip is to look here for Dr Bronner’s Castile soap – they frequently have both liquid and bar formats. If you’re on a budget, you will find them much cheaper than your local whole foods store. They also often have bar soaps either in tins or wrapped in paper, it just depends how picky about your ingredients you are.

I recently wrote about how I found these WONDERFUL solid beeswax body lotions in TK Maxx. Actually, I’m gutted I’m about to come to the end of my supply and I haven’t seen them since. Post in the comments if you find any!

This week I found a lovely scrubbing brush for doing the dishes, made from solid wood and natural bristles. I bought my e-cloths here, although I now realise they’re not as perfect a cleaning solution, as I once thought due to the plastic microfibres released when washing. But they were vastly cheaper than other places.

I also have some great glass Pyrex dishes with lids, that can go straight from the freezer to the oven or microwave as they are thermal shock resistant. It also means I no longer freeze a lot of things in plastic.

I also found this wonderful Pyrex baking sheet in TK Maxx. No nasty silicone coatings and best of all, it goes straight in the dishwasher and comes out looking like new! It is slightly heavier than your standard baking trays and you do need to take care putting it in, and out of the oven.

I frequently see Kilner and other glass storage jars in here. They often have eco-makeup brushes too. They always seem to have cardboard boxes containing sets of essential oils, packaged in glass.

They also frequently have glass water bottles and always have metal water bottles in stock. I have seen Klean Kanteen’s in here, really cheap! I got my metal one there for about £4, I think. I’ve had it for years and I will likely go back there to get a glass one eventually.

Oh and I always get my TEK hairbrushes here, for about 1/4 of the RRP. These are solid wood brushes with either wooden or natural bristles. They are amazing and packaged only in cardboard!

Do you have any great TK Maxx zero waste finds to share? Please share by posting in the comments 🙂 Other people have told me you can also buy bamboo socks here, in cardboard packaging and loofahs which are useful for cleaning your home and your body.

Swagbucks – July Referral Promotion – 500 SB per Referral!

Summer is here and Swagbucks has a bonus in the form of a 500 SB bonus!

Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already; like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, or PayPal cash.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 500 SB bonus! Here’s how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 1/8/17. You’ll get a 300 SB bonus for it!

3. If you spend at least £25 through Swagbucks Shop* you’ll get another 200 SB bonus on top of the cash back you’ll get from shopping. If you have some shopping to do online, just go to Swagbucks first and visit the store through them. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, but you’ll get SB points for every pound you spend (on top of the bonus)!

That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I’ve earned more than £2,100 to date. At the moment, I’m saving up to buy an Apple Mac desktop computer and I’m almost halfway there! You can check out my previous posts to see which other lovely things I’ve been able to afford thanks to Swagbucks!

*You must receive your shopping SB before 1 August 2017.

Things that have gone this week – 12 & 13

I’m late again in posting, as I have slowed down the pace of my decluttering. Partly due to the temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius – it’s just too hot to do anything much!

I have managed to sell one item on eBay each week, both blouses. The only other thing that’s gone is a tonne of weeds from the garden! Hence my lack of blogging, I’ve been trying to get outside more and enjoy summer.

  1. Vintage Laura Ashley silk blouse
  2. M&S pink cotton blouse

Stay tuned, as I aim to be posting more!
