    As we just discussed, I hate shopping.  That does carry over into food shopping too.  And I’m kind of a child about it.  I need to motivate myself to go with little rewards.  In the case of going to the natural foods store, if I go, I let myself buy a natural soda from their fabulous selection.  I know that’s weird, and I’m probably sharing too much, but it’s just the way it works.  I hardly ever drink soda otherwise.  It’s all water or tea.

    Yesterday’s soda selection was outstanding. Read more…

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
