Quite often if we go out for a meal and I can't eat all the meat I put it in a paper napkin and bring it home for the dog - she always knows when I've got something in my bag. One time after doing this and getting home my son looked very bemused when the dog went crazy smelling my bag. He hadn't seen me put the left over meat away!
If we are having pizza and can't finish it I ask for it to be put into a pizza box to take home - the waiter usually is quite happy to do this - I've paid for the food and I begrudge wasting it. Before now we have even taken a partly finished bottle of wine home - I know your not supposed to as the restaurant normally doesn't have an off-licence licence but well, again if we have paid for it why not take it home and drink it?

I can remember being absolutely humiliated 15 years ago when the first Lidl opened in my home town and my dad actually SHOPPED there! He brought the shopping home in THOSE carrier bags and my friends were at my house!!! I was mortified to the point of tears and tantrums.
Well, here I am, aged 28 with my own little family. . and I personally find Lidl over-priced now! haha!

Personally, I think the more open everyone becomes, the less embarrassing it will become. It will become the 'norm'.
Nobody will think twice about asking the waiter to bag up the food you can't eat, so you can take it home (no need for wrapping it in a napkin under the table)
Charity shops will become a valuable resource where people can search out a bargin.
And the world will be a happier, less wasteful place.
Be glad people, for you are ahead of the game, you are the trend setters!
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
