    It hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be to eat less meat, I'm finding that more and more often I opt for vegetarian options. It's difficult for me to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables because I have Crohn's and a lot of food allergies, so I have a lot of intolerances. I had a major Crohn's episode about 6 or 7 years ago and ever since...

    I've been budgeting regularly for many years now, but I seem to always have just enough to pay for my bills and necessities and a little bit of entertainment.

Shampoo bottles, thread spools (used to be wooden!) To-go food containers. Then there's things like cell phone cases that don't universally fit, so when you need a new cell phone you need a new case....

    I am so proud of these 5 minute showers! I need to get more consistent but these feel like a big achievement. I think the next step I should take to reduce my water footprint is to make sure I turn on and off the water right when I need it/am done with it, and make sure I don't get distracted and let it run. I might think about starting my...

    Planted more seeds yesterday. Rain is in store for the weekend so this should help the germination! Looking forward to a walk in the springtime rain. Air is fresh!
