Creating less waste and buying less stuff can really be hard when celebrating life’s events. I knew the boy was going to be getting more stuff, so we started getting some of his less used things out if the house. (Like over 100!)
First we went through his astounding collection of stuffed animals. These lucky guys already found a new home!
Then, we sold a few things on a yard sale site that were basically brand new!
On to the party, we tried to keep it low key. I made the boy his cookie cake! I used this amazing recipe: http://www.fourmileridge.com/giant-chocolate-chip-cookie/
And we ate off of my real plates and drank out of non disposable cups. It was perfect! An amazing part was that my garbage can wasn’t filled to the brim with birthday stuff! It was a great weekend!!
