    When tracking purchases you, of course, are more wary of what you are buying. Hence I bought less and really tried to keep the packaging down to a minimum.

    As I de-clutter my home I have used the convenience of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) donation pick-up services http://pickupplease.org/schedule-email/?+%28Open%29+-+%2823%2F25%29+-+10%2F24%2F16. I think de-cluttering is an on-going event.

      Great one, Irene! It's a freeing feeling, isn't it? It's great that you've found a resource for donation pick up. Thank you for sharing!

    This past summer I attended a Master Gardener plant sale event and sat in on a presentation about vegetable gardening. A book that was suggested was the Square Foot Gardening which I picked up used at Powell Books. I have begun the process of setting out and preparing my plot, since laying down the mulch, to begin in Spring.

    Found a great FREE arborist mulch program but be prepared for a very large drop. https://www.chipdrop.in/aboutus/

    I know this is a challenge but can you choose what you already do? i.e. I don't own a car so I already walk, ride bike and commute by public transportation...not a challenge for me right?
