I've decided to step it up in doing my part to save the environment.
If you don't know by now, deep down I'm really a hippy earth mother-type.
Or at least I want to be. I'm trying.
I grind my own wheat.
We have a compost box in the backyard.
I take my own reusable bag to the store.
Exciting, no? But that's just the tip of the iceberg.
There has to be more I can do.
I don't want to be political about it.
I just want to be wise and take care of the earth God has so generously given to us. I think we can all do a better job at that.
And I also want to save money.
So call it what you want ...
I'm calling it smart.
And I'm going to try and do something or make a change every week. Some will be little, some will be big, but they all count.
This week ...
I am hanging a clothes line, 2 actually, across my back patio.
I cannot believe that I have never had a clothesline!
Growing up, it seemed like everyone had one.
I remember helping my grandma hang clothes outside to dry.
They always smelled so good. There was just something about watching fabric flutter in the breeze that made me think everything was well and good.
I was doing some research on clotheslines. Did you know it's actually illegal to have a clothesline in some neighborhoods in some towns? I don't know, I may be breaking the law. (wait until I get a few chickens ... I'm sure I'll be a criminal!) But I'm hanging my clotheslines this week and I'll be back to post photos for you.
So do you do your part? Are you frugal? What do you do?
I'm taking notes.
