Getting Greener

Well, I took the plunge today; I bought cloth diapers. I figure, why wait? Might as well start now with my daughter rather than just wait until the next one. My husband is a little nervous about it, but I am WAY excited to try them.

Among the other things I’ve started are the following, some of which I might have already mentioned:

  • Joined a food co-op. First pick up is next week, so I’ll have more thoughts about it then.
  • Probably going to start grinding my own grain.
  • Making my own bread once a week. Made tortillas tonight and they were great!
  • We finished our month of not spending, but we’ve decided to at least continue with limiting going out to eat. We’re trying to really make it a special treat (and I think it’s working!)
  • Using cloth napkins and dishrags rather than paper products. We opened a roll of paper towels over a week ago and aren’t even half way through it.

It’s kind of fun going green!
