So far in our move towards greener living, we have accomplished the following:

Goals for June:
  • Line dry clothing
  • Stop buying packaged foods (cut back on disposable items)
  • Cut out use of paper towels
  • Buy locally made peanut butter
  • Tortillas
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Tomatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Garlic
  • Makeup (foundation)
  • Bread (more often)
    • Sandwich
    • Bagels
    • Pizza Dough (freeze)
    • Pie Dough (freeze)
    • Bread crumbs (save up the ends of bread in the freezer until you have enough to make a batch of crumbs or croutons.  For the breadcrumbs:  Lay bread heals on a cookie sheet and bake until dried but not burned.  Put them through the food processor and back into the freezer for storage.)
  • Preserve our own food:
    • pasta sauce, jelly, salsa, syrup, pears, apples, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, zucchini

Good news: We finally invested in a vacuum sealer so we can keep our freezer food in tip top condition.
