It Ain't Easy Being Green

Thursdays in the Simple Life Series are all about reducing the clutter (mental and physical) you bring into your life in the first place, starting with our “green” tips. Below you can find the “Green” schedule. I will let you know what I am doing to make simple changes in my own life. I hope you follow along and try some of these steps yourself. Please let me know how you are coming along by leaving comments at the bottom of each post. Tell me what works, what doesn’t, if you are bored – whatever – we are learning and growing together. Hopefully by the end of this process, you will have a better view of your health, your money, your lifestyle, your dreams, your regrets and use these findings to make steps to improving your life overall.

What's the use? You've heard it before - to save our eco-system. Before you hang up your re-usable grocery bag, read through my "Green" series and see how easy it really can be.

Green....What does green mean or signify to you? Does it mean "eco-friendly?" How about fresh spring "green" grass or the ever-eluding "green-backs?" Maybe the word green makes you envision funny little leprechauns and four leaf clovers? Or maybe your "green" thumb starts to itch when warmer weather creeps around? Explore the many ways green is entwined in our daily lives as I encourage you to.....
