For the 8 years I’ve been married, most of those have been on a very tight budget. My husband and I have always budgeted. This is where Craigslist comes in. I LOVE Craigslist. Actually, that might be an understatement. I REALLY LOVE Craigslist.
About 3 years ago, my husband found a book called, “Zero Waste Home.” He knew it sounded up my alley so he got it for me. I devoured it! The author and her family only produce a mason jar full of trash each year. It is truly amazing and very inspiring. After reading that book, I really tackled reducing the amount of trash we produced. One of those ways was to get rid of papertowels completely.
I grew up thinking mayonnaise was bad for you. But I grew up in the 90’s when high fat was a “no-no.” Now, I know that mayo actually can be really good for you.
