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.post #131 of 5105/14/13 at 2:42pmpost #132 of 5105/14/13 at 2:47pmpost #133 of 5105/14/13 at 3:17pmpost #134 of 5105/14/13 at 3:21pm
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!

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.post #138 of 5105/14/13 at 6:27pmpost #139 of 5105/14/13 at 7:25pm
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!
