Re-purposing items not only saves the world, saves us MONEY! Also, I LOVE Freecycle! Have you tried it? You must do it! I find things we can't use, instead of wasting gas running to 5 charities to see if they will take it, I post the item and someone comes to ME and picks it up. Can it get any better? I just place it on the porch and it's gone. I really enjoy it, when it is a family that really needs the baby clothes or baby items I have. I usually will email if I find something later on just to see if they need it.
So, onto Earth Day...do you have any plans to do something "special"? The girls and I have a project. Tim laughs when he hears that, because that will mean a mess, a big one at that. I'll be screaming, Morgan will be rolling her eyes, and Bridget will eventually cry over something. We have been collecting paper and shredding it. Instead of recycling it, we are saving it to make garland. I saw this great idea where you save a bunch of paper, soak it overnight, and make small balls that you paint after they dry. Then you poke holes in them to string. I think it's a great project for the girls that are always asking for something fun to do, we're recycling paper (junk mail, school papers, etc.), and we're decorating the house! Once we are done the project, I'll be give you the step-by-step process if interested along with photos.
I'm still trying to tweak things with the blog; picking a template, wondering why some links are not showing, etc. Frustrating when I only have a few moments to do anything, but I'll get there. Hopefully, you can bear with me.
