I've been on a cleaning and decluttering kick lately.
Maybe I'm turning into FF...if someone gives me a Rolex I'll know for sure.
I found this blog today, actually from FF's blog: Rich Life on a Budget. I scanned through a few of her posts, but the one I linked really struck me. It's her post on this woman (Bea) whose life is soo streamlined it makes me uncomfortable! I don't have the want nor the will to live my life like this woman, but I can do simple things.
I've been decluttering my tiny apartment for 2 days (no signs of stopping) and I feel better already. Getting rid of junk I don't use and freeing up space I do need feels wonderful! I've got a bag of clothes to donate and a box of various stuff to donate to good will.
The Rich Life on a Budget lady also showed these cool recyclable toothbrushes with handles made from recycled yogurt cups. The brand is Preserve. She gets them at Walgreens for $2.99. Apparently Bea orders hers in from Australia. I had some extra time on my hands this afternoon and wandered into a store called "The Feel Good Store". I check it out every now and then. They have yoga stuff, nice candles, every sort of tea you can think of, etc. So today when I went in I saw the 'preserve' toothbrushes! Go figure. I'd never heard of them before today, and now I read 2 blog posts about them and see them. It was $4.99, come in a recyclable travel case and includes a postage paid envelope to mail back the toothbrush so it can be recycled!

Jump on the bandwagon and clean, declutter, or buy an earth friendly tooth brush!
