Hey folks, how’s it hanging? Do me a wee favour and have a look around you right now. Where are you? Bedroom? Office? Bathroom (because you’re reading this while on the toilet (no judge))? Take a moment to notice the things that surround you. Start with the big stuff then work down: House, room, couches, … Continue reading Reducio!
Hello everybody and welcome back to Use Good Stuff for 2016! The new year is when a lot of us start setting new goals - whether we stick to them or not, the intentions are good! If you still have room on your list for a few more resolutions, how about adding in some new … Continue reading 2016 – Make It Green!

Use Good Stuff has seen a lot of support and success over the last 8 months, and we are very appreciative for every bit of that. We hope that 2016 will bring even more wonderful things, … Continue reading December/2015 Round Up
This month has been another busy one! We've had a few really good updates on the blog over the last few weeks, and are getting ready for the end-of-year wind down. We hit our 50th post last week which was a pretty exciting occasion, and also quite surprising to think we have done that many … Continue reading November Round-Up
Woah, 50 posts! That's a cool little milestone and we are quite proud of it, so this week for our 50th post we thought we would do something a bit different. We are nearing the end of the year, and it's about this time that we find ourselves thinking and reflecting about the past 12 … Continue reading This Time It’s Personal – Our 50th Post!
It’s so easy to place a lot of importance on money. We seem to need so much of it just to live comfortably, and yet it’s so hard to come by. Some people seem to have a super ridiculous amount of it, while others don’t have anywhere near enough to survive. It’s at the core … Continue reading Time Is Money
The end of October is usually when I start having a bit of pre-holidays panic. Once again I have not started planning or shopping for Christmas, I'm realising that time is running out, and have resigned myself to the fact that all of my loved ones will be receiving socks or chocolates, or perhaps a cool … Continue reading October Round-Up
This month, I turned over a new leaf. A leaf that, prior to my going green journey, I genuinely never thought I would turn. Growing up in a typical small-town NZ household, there was no such thing as a vegetarian meal. We were meat and 3 veg most nights of the week, with a fish … Continue reading More Than Meats The Eye – Environmental Vegetarianism
With September almost over, it's time to sum up this month's blog updates for you all! It's been a busy month for me at my actually-pays-the-bills job, so the blog has taken a bit of a backseat, but we've still managed to get some excellent posts up over the last few weeks. It started with … Continue reading September Round-Up
This week I thought I would put something a little different on the blog for ya'll - a cheeky bit of crafting! I've always been a sucker for DIY crafting fun, and a couple of weeks ago I noticed we had gathered a lot of old toilet paper rolls in the bathroom. Obviously these can … Continue reading Reused crafts – We’re on a roll!
