not buying it - week 2

i'm a little fuzzy on the details of last week so i may have missed a few things.


-matched up a shirt and skirt to refashion into a dress for jaden

-made my own corned beef brining solution and brined a brisket (it turned out delicious)
-grated my own horseradish to make sauce

-reusing plastic bags for trash bags

-diligently shutting off power strips each night for computer/dsl and tv/dvd player
-making sure lights are off when we are not in the room

-made gnomes, painted wooden people, made stickers from leftover sticky back paper scraps for stufing eggs for our spring egg hunt

exercise/self improvement
-knife throwing



-had to purchase a new iron, sage broke ours and i searched several thrift shops. i do not like the new iron so i plan on returning it and hope to find a second hand or freecycle one

-sold a few items around the house on ebay
-gave away 3 bags full of diapers and toddler clothes to a friend who needed them

I have been shutting ALL the power strips off in the house as soon as the kids leave for school, before i leave for work. I can tell you that it ABSOLUTELY is saving us money...its unreal how much electricity is wasted on appliances (especially cable dvr machines that are constantly "searching" for a signal
