Going crunchy

I have made the decision to go crunchy. Don't poke fun before you hear me out. I already recycle like crazy and use Publix reusable grocery bags. I now plan to put a few other things into action:

CFL bulbs
homemade cleaning solutions and detergents
NO paper towels

These are my first steps into going green. Why you may ask? To be honest, I am looking for ways to save money, to be healthier, and to take more control over my own house. After doing some research I am astonished at the money that can be saved and I think that is reason #1. This working out kick and strong desire I have to start eliminating nasty things from my diet is playing a huge part as well. And lastly, I'm a control freak - enough said. I have decided I will start at a slow pace so I don't overwhelm myself...thank you Renee for the inspiration! (I'm not even sure Renee reads my blog but just in case she does she should get the props for this new leaf I am turning over.)

I will keep you posted on how this new lofty goal turns out (well not so lofty because if it seemed hard I probably wouldn't be doing it). If you already do some green stuff yourself that I haven't mentioned I would love suggestions!


  1. I love it!! I've been trying to do some "green" things around our house and Marc makes fun of me! I wish I could find a replacement for paper towels though, I swear we go through like a roll a day. Let me know what you come up with! There was a book on Oprah last year called something like Gorgeously Green that had a lot of stuff to do around your house with cleaning solutions and stuff.

  2. Good for you! The CFL bulbs are awesome--I can't remember the last time I changed a lightbulb!

  3. Hey Jana!
    I'm proud of you! It's a little hard at first to change what you've always done, but it gets easier all the time. I'm sure Renee checks your blog and I know this is the reason she started hers...to educate and inspire others! It worked for me! :)
