  • Reflection Question
    Waste Go Paperless
    Reducing your paper mail can be such a freeing action to take -- by reducing what is coming in, you can reduce what is going into the recycling bin too. How does it make you feel? What is the next step you will take to reduce your waste?

    I went through all my online systems, banking and billing, and selected paperless billing over the weekend. I have also started separating out my garbage so that I can recycle items such as carboard and plastic.

    We will not be able to monitor our home temp from our phones! It will notify us if someone changes the temp above or below a certain set point!

  • Reflection Question
    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    We have conciously been paying more attention to this. That money could go to much better use paying off bills towards early retirement!
