Congratulations to all of you who completed our 21-day event! I recently sent out an email asking for a poll to vote on our final meeting date. Please respond when you know which days in June you are free. So far I only have had 2 responses. Also, we will be contacting each of you to collect the journals to figure out the final winner. Once again, thanks for all your diligence and participation.

Also, please feel free to use this blog to continue to share with us about any concerns you have or if you wish to continue living lighter. Are there any habits you will keep?

Hey guys,

Here's a sneak peak at the Mr.McCloud prize.

simple DIY

Hi everyone,

My friend send me this idea and I want to share with all of you. This simple DIY give plastic bottle a second useful life.... ( I know we shouldn't be drinking from plastic bottle, but if you happen to be buy a drink when you are really really thirsty and forgot your water is how you can reuse the plastic bottle to feel less guilty ...heehee)

This is not only cheap and it really seal the bag to prevent your cookies or chips to get soft....


In response to Denise's post on how I'm doing at the end of this process...amazingly, I'm doing alright! The project encouraged us to wake up early & check out the Farmers Market for 3 weekends in a row. We have a cabinet where we stuff our plastic bags after shopping & I noticed that it's not overflowing as it normally is thanks to utilizing reuseable bags. Although I haven't had a chance to use alternate means of transportation, I have been mindful of carpooling with others when going out. Taking 5 minute showers hasn't been too challenging as I'm quick in the shower anyway. There's much to do in the morning than stand under a shower for a long period of time. Buying organic food has been more of a struggle for me since it's more expensive. I find myself asking, "do the pesticides on this inorganic apple & the environmental impact outweigh the overall nutritional value & its affordability?" Unfortunately, my answer is usually no. I also slipped & made 2 trips to McDonald's during the course of this project. It will take some time for my eating habits to improve! However, I'm not a huge carnivore & can forego meat during some meals.

The crux of what this whole project is about. A "must watch".
Hey guys,

Countdown to Sunday! Our event is ending soon. So far I have 3 submissions for Mr. McCloud. Please remember to submit before the event ends. :)

How is everyone doing today? Hanging in there? Can't wait for the event to end? ...or has it been a piece of cake? Any thoughts?
