Trying to be Green

June 20th, 2007 at 08:17 pm

Put $85.00 into the $20.00 challenge today. This money consisted of rolled coin(from returning bottles), a dividend check and some cash that wasn't spent from my pocket money. Today I am walking around with 0.00 in my wallet. Tomorrow is pay day. I feel that I am on track.

I went to Home Depot today to see if I could find some energy saving devices. They didn't have the CFL's I was looking for and they didn't have a low flow shower head either. I left there and went to Lowes and it was the same story there. Totally frustrated. My daughter had complained to my husband this morning that the toilet wasn't working, so he took the lid off and the both of them had this look on their face when they came out with the filled plastic bottle I had put there, the day before, to conserve water. I think they think that I am going too far with my conservation. I don't. There are so many things that can be changed in my house to make it much more efficient. My wish list is an attice fan, a programable thermostat and a new front door. Oh well with everything else in the works I guess I'll have to wait.

I got some great looking steaks on sale today. So guess what's for dinner. Steak, some onions and mushrooms, mashed potatoes and veggie.

    Just remind them that if they lived in Sheryl Crow's house they'd only be allowed one square of TP per ... umm ... use. Wink

    I don't think a plastic bottle in the toilet tank is all that extreme.

    On my personal want list are solar attic fan and a hybrid car. Oh, and a tankless water heater.

    Fern,
    I didn't know that they made solar attic fans. Thank you I will look into that. I did know about the tankless hot water heater. If the one I am using now goes out of service I will certainly look into the tankless water heaters. I think that they are kind of new so i would like to hear the reports on them. Thanks for the input. I love learning about different ways to help the enviroment.
