Here are some of the little things I've done just this week in this area:
*Opted out of receiving a local phone book (Thanks to this site for the inspiration!)
*Used this quick and easy "salad spinning" method instead of buying or even desiring a gadget that would do the same job. (hat tip to Small Notebook)
*Took advantage of this discount offer to order some essential oils for making my own cleaners, which I've been experimenting with (my swap partner included a book in my shoebox that has been very inspirational--look for the link on Friday!)
*Picked up litter (Nathan loves helping by pointing out every scrap he sees!)
*Walked across town to deliver a bill, instead of driving the car. (This was a sacrifice as it was 86 degrees outside!)
It seems most appropriate to end this post with one of my favorite quotes, a gem from Mother Teresa: "Be faithful in the little things, for in them your strength lies."
What are some of the *little things* you've been doing lately?
And now for a little, but very off-topic question: a friend recently gave us bags of green beans that were frozen from last year's garden. I've tried both steaming and baking them, and they've turned out quite mushy. Any suggestions? I don't want to waste them, but we don't want to eat soggy beans, either! Thanks for your help.
