    I’m excited about the great environmental awareness awakening in Wenatchee and hope to carry it forward to my new home on Idaho.

    Just posted a share on FaceBook to support Sustainable Wenatchee.  Small donations and promotion today help bring this great program back tomorrow!

    My friend gave me a journal for my b-day and I’m using it to “write the three things I’m grateful for” each day even though it’s not one of my eight challenges.

    Making food a week ahead so my hubby can skip the fast food joints while working in Idaho.  Saves money, healthier and there’s no trash or food waste from restaurants.

    Plastic free is hard when you’re moving!  I’ve been reducing plastics for a year but moving is just not working out without plastic wrap and packing tape.  I am re-using bubble tape, rubber bands and baggies...  😔. Open to suggestions.

    Waste free cooking is a lot harder without chickens for veggie scraps but I’ve got this.

    Started my donation box at home again.  But this year with a vengeance as we’re moving.  So much easier packing when you’re already de cluttered.  Downsizing is addicting,
