Want to be friendly to the Earth and contribute LESS to landfills? Then start buying products that can be used over and over again! And guess what....they can save money too!
Buying reusable products is a real bonus in our home. It minimizes what I need to buy each week at the grocery store while saving money at the same time. It minimizes the garbage that we are left with each week since we are not throwing disposable items out. That of course also minimizes how much recycling and repurposing we need to do each week as well. And of course the best part is knowing that we are doing our part for the Earth by not needlessly contributing to landfills that can take hundreds to millions of years to decompose. Even longer in sanitary landfills! And remember, even paper doesn't decompose in a sanitary landfill...

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
