Every time i go into a supermarket now i am asked if i want a bag. Not used any for years as i have collapable crates in the car that i empty the trolley into.
I never had a lift to school,it was a walk every day. We had no phone so walked to see if our friends were home or not. Our pens lasted years with ink refills in a bottle.
We wasted nothing back then as not much money about. No central heating and a bath once a week. Boy that bathroom was cold in the Winter.
