Cleaning stuff: what and why

Giveaway at the bottom of this post!! One of the toughest sells for the more natural, health conscious person is the switch to a better deodorant. It is HARD. Most of us need some sort of odor protection throughout the day and yet it can be really hard to find a good one. That super natural […]

A few years back and two homes ago we developed a big problem with pantry moths. I am not totally sure how it all began because I never   had a big problem with them before, perhaps a few here and there. This particular year though I could barely keep anything in the pantry that they did not […]

I adore small cars. I guess I just don’t buy into that typically American ideal that bigger is better. I prefer a small sleek car that whip in and out of parking spaces in flash and maneuver through traffic easy. Small cars usually have better gas mileage and they are more enjoyable for me to drive.

I am looking for ways to save money this winter on heating costs. Last winter our peak bill was close to $600. That about knocked our socks off.

In my experience swiss chard is incredibly easy to grow. It tolerates the cold well so you can start growing it very early in the spring and have fresh greens even when the weather is still chilly. It handles itself well even in the hot temperatures and lasts well into the return of the cold. […]

If you’re hoping to encourage more birds into your garden, it can be hard to know where to start, can’t it? It’s not as simple as just throwing some stale bread on the lawn and watching them flock in (and in fact, bread isn’t good for the birds and should be avoided). Well, don’t worry. […]

Years ago I lived in a very rural area where we had no city garbage service. This meant no trash pick up and no recyclable goods pick-up and I had to find a private service to haul garbage away. For the first week or so I committed the ultimate eco-sin and did not recycle. I ended […]

Frugal Wins: Made an offer on an old debt and settled it for 50% off! Yay! This old debt stems from changing cell phone carriers.
