This week has been fairly uneventful but a very good week. You know those weeks where you are in a good mood (most of the time), things are going well, nothing too bad happens, etc. Thats the week I had. Nothing spectacular, just enjoyable.
I have also accomplished a lot this week….like big projects I had been putting off. I finally organized our budget. Which is annoying…..our gas bill is like $22 in the summer but like $300 in the winter. I have my heat on 69….the lowest it can go before we freeze (our house does not heat well, I think). With two small children, cutting back on heat is an impossible way to “be green”. I dont mind being cold, but I refuse to let my little ones freeze. I just wish gas was not so expensive. Shoot, I could have a big savings if gas prices were normal. But who isnt complaining about that?
We started recycling this week. I tried to do it awhile back but long story short, we did not have the correct contact number. So that is my new way to work on saving the environment. I am considering using reusable grocery bags (like canvas bags). In my defense, I do re-use the plastic bags for diapers, etc. But it just seems better to use re-usable ones on occasion. However, I am not sure if I am up to lugging them to the store with me…..and have at least one kid in tow.
What are you doing to be more environmentally friendly??
I plan to switch to environmentally friendly cleaning supplies, as mine run out. Except in the bathroom. I am too grossed out and need a good bacteria fighting cleaner! Its the little things! I am not super environmentally conscious, but I do feel like its wise to be more thoughtful on things that are easily changeable.
When I started this post, I had no intention of getting on that topic!
Have a nice Saturday. I keep thinking its Sunday. Not sure why!
