    The month is nearly finished. I have loved doing this challenge. It has taught me how to live more sustainably ans at a much faster pace than I would have accomplished on my own.

  • Reflection Question
    Lifestyle Buy Only What I Need
    As you have reduced your spending, what have you noticed about your 'health and safety' purchasing habits? How might this change your longer term purchasing decisions?

    It takes a lot for us to purchase something new. I do struggle sometimes when I get to buying something and it pyramids into several things so I am working on that.
  • Reflection Question
    Pets All Natural Pet Toys
    In what ways is supplying your pet with all natural pet toys better for your pet, better for you, and better for the environment?

    Theyre harder for our pet to take apart and the cats tend to play with the natural toys versws the plastic balls with bells in them
