Benjamin Franklin always said "A penny saved is a penny earned."
How did I do this? It was so simple. I cut my electric usage by opening the windows in the Spring and Fall and enjoying fresh air instead of recycled stale air.
I stopped using my dishwasher and found out I can wash the dishes by hand in just a few minutes time and they actually come out a lot cleaner. I just air dry them, so I am off on my way to doing other things faster than if I were still loading the dishwasher.
When I can, I hang my sheets on the line to dry instead of using the dryer. I love that sunshine smell on my pillow cases.
I watch TV only a little now. I have found treasures in books and lots of them were on my own bookshelf. I had trouble finding time to read. Now the TV is off and voila! reading time is there.
I like the changes I have made in these past two years. Funny, this is how life was when I was a child. Progress took over and now I choose not to embrace some of those changes. I still like my computer though. :)
