Less Stuff, More Experiences this Holiday Season

Day 330 – The holidays are a wonderful time of year. However, it’s also the time of year, where we produce the most waste. Between, the extra food, the wrapping paper and the need to make room for more stuff, we find ourselves tossing more in the trash.

I had an idea to help alleviate the amount of waste my family produced this holiday season by asking them to come up with gift ideas that involved more experiences than stuff. I even came up with a list to help inspire them.

A few of the suggestions included:

  1. The Movies
  2. Trampoline Park
  3. Escape Room
  4. Cooking Class
  5. A Play/Musical
  6. Golf Outing
  7. Nail Salon
  8. Sporting Event
  9. Museum Admission
  10. Amusement Park Pass

The kids used a website called So Kind Registry, to share their gift ideas with family. The site was created to encourages the giving of homemade gifts, charitable donations, secondhand
goods, experiences and more. My kids definitely need to work on the concept of less stuff and more fun, as I found items on the list along with a few experiences. The hope is that with each year, we can increase the requests for more experiences and less stuff.

Tomorrow, a cool way to protect your bike from the elements.
