The Story of Stuff


My husband and I constantly try to look at what we really need. You have to think hard about what you purchase and if you really need it. And if you really need it are you choosing the best one for the earth and for your health. I like to take it a step further and think of where is it going to end up if I don't keep it forever. Think about it. How often do we really keep things forever. They have to go somewhere. Here is a really good link that tells you "Where stuff comes from and where it goes" http://www.storyofstuff.com/

Hi there :)

Thank you for your comment on my stretch mark blog post!

About the hair - static is not a problem for me, no. I have no idea what to do about it - maybe keep it in a ponytail for a few minutes to calm it down? :D

have you heard of freecycle? we've gotten rid of a lot this summer through freecycling.

Yeah I have heard of freecycle. I checked it out about a year ago and I didn't really get how to use it. I will have to re-visit it. I have used craigslist a lot. Most of my furniture has been free thanks to craigslist.
