1. Toothpaste Bottles This is my all-time favorite cut from my life. Toothpaste.  Don’t worry, I’m not running around with stained teeth and yuck breath, I just make my own toothpaste instead. It’s the simplest recipe, lasts forever, and SIGNIFICANTLY reduces my waste output. I’m a “guestimator”. I rarely writer down recipes and even less […]

I love baking bread.  It was something I took up more in passing than with a real intention to start doing it regularly.  My mother has baked bread for years after learning from a woman in a casual conversation that you get the most nutrients from wheat only if you use it within 24 hours […]

About a year ago,  I discovered that I was allergic to eggs.  Aside from having to cut out a lot of foods from my diet, it hasn’t been so bad.  I suffered from mild to severe asthma since I was a teenager and after cutting eggs out my asthma has completely disappeared!  If you haven’t […]

One bathroom item I forgot about is my Diva Cup. If you haven’t heard about it, read some great reviews here.  It really isn’t for everyone and it definitely takes some getting used to, but as you have probably figured out, I love anything that isn’t terribly wasteful. Years ago I wanted to cut back […]

Most minimalist blogs and writers advise that you start decluttering one room at a time.  Well, I started with my bathroom and it has since became my sanctuary.  No, it isn’t as awesome as the image on the left, but I find it quite cozy and comfortable and it is totally me.

I haven’t used shampoo or conditioner in almost a decade.  When I was a teenager, I got really tired of the effect shampoo and conditioner had on my hair.  I had constant dandruff (despite using anti-dandruff shampoos) and I never looked forward to washing my hair because it would fluff up and look ridiculous, especially […]

My journey began when I was a teenager.  I love Feng Shui and was constantly cleaning and rearranging my room to suit the flow.  I was always purging my room only to re-accumulate over time.  I loved the simplicity of a perfectly placed plant next to a stone to imbibe an area with a certain […]

Just tried this homemade toothpaste recipe fromhttp://www.tammysrecipes.com/homemade_toothpaste Love it! I ran out of my Tom’s toothpaste the other day and haven’t managed to remember to get some while at the store.  I realized I had all the ingredients necessary to make homemade toothpaste (coconut oil, stevia, baking soda, peppermint oil).  I tried it and loved […]

Sorry for the delay in posting. You know, holidays and all can be very time consuming. Anyway, I ran out of eggs this morning but really wanted to make some corn bread. So, I improvised.The recipe only calls for one egg so it isn’t that devastating to replace it with something else. I wanted the […]

One of the most often poisoned and frequent weeds found in the United States is Dandelion. The whole plant is edible and not to mention delicious. I get very excited to see them bloom in the spring and fall.  My husband and I go out and pick as many as we can find and make […]
