Spring Clean Up Continues

So what I've discovered with my spring clean up is that the fewer things you bring into your home, the fewer things you eventually have to toss. Obviously I know it's the first R in reduce, reuse, recycle, but it became evident that packaging is a huge part of that equation. After recycling the laundry detergent containers which had gathered in a corner of the basement, I decided to switch to Method, sold at -- where else-- Target. Because the soap is more condensed, it requires less packaging. It's the same reason I've switched to bags of coffee instead of cans-- less to recycle. Any other swaps for the sake of packaging? Do share.
