Write a letter or pick up the phone rather than sending an email or text. We want our children to have a deeper connection with their relatives and friends.

I love when the weather breaks and I get to hang my clothes outside. Crunchy towels make me happy. Our family also has not purchased a new piece of clothing in almost 3 years (except for under garments). Everything we purchased has been used.

Thanks for the chance to win!! We do lots of the things mentioned in the article already, but I think the biggest things we've done recently to be more sustainable is going back to being a one-car family. It's tough at times, but so worth it in the long run!

We do many of the sustainable home things but I was definitely motivated by the sustainable learning ideas and would love to get my kids into letter writing.

I'm posting here to try and win the Oak Meadow curriculum for my 5 year old son, Gavyn, who will be doing Kindergarten next year! :) The tips that motivated and inspired me from Practical Tips for Simple Living were the using cloth napkins, giving away things my family and I no longer need, and helping other people. One tip I have for all the moms out there is to educate yourself and the public as much as possible with new knowledge. Awareness is so important especially for parents. I have noticed there's a lot of parents out there just going about their daily lives just doing what they are told even if it hurts their child. Speak up because you never know who's life you are helping. Much love.

I just shared this giveaway on my facebook publicly. I hope you pick my son!! :)

The line that inspire me most was taking the time to do art and music with your kids.  It is so important!

I shared on Facebook. :)

I love the ideas for simple and sustainable living. While I do a lot of those things, what really inspired me was the suggestion to greet your neighbors by name. We move a lot, but neighbors are important and getting to know them is good for everyone no matter how long they will be your neighbors - they could become lifelong friends!

post #135 of 510

We do the obvious... cloth diapers, napkins, towels, etc... but I really loved the "sustainable relationship" tips!  Especially in our techie society, everyone in our house can benefit from reading this!  Love it.

Love that list, we do almost all of them. The one tip that inspired me today is the "Create a sanctuary spot....", I need to create an inviting, peaceful, READING spot in the house -somewhere the kids can go and get comfy with a book, a special place we can all sit together to listen to our stories.

I shared!  SO would love to win!!

I liked the tip to create a sanctuary.  I've been trying to do that!  Things have been pretty chaotic at home since the birth of baby # 3 six weeks ago and I love being able to retreat to my clean bedroom.


The "wonder board" is a neat idea.  


We are going to hang up a clothes line this summer to line dry clothes!
