My personal war on packaging

I recycle like a crazy person and try to buy everything in recycled packaging at the least but I have been much energy is required to RECYCLE the recyclable packaging. So I am going to try, piece by piece to limit the amount of packaging waste that I produce. And as one of my favourite bloggers (that would be Ashley over at Small Measure) says, its all about the small steps we take - oh, and snorty laughter !!
So today is the first day of the rest of my life and the first day of my personal war on packaging and to celebrate, I ordered 2 "Keep Cups" reusable coffee cups from a really cool Australian store Keep Cup. I'll let you know what I think......

Superhousewife Tip #167

What to do? Mother-in-law coming to babysit the children. Floor as dirty as a floor. Rush to cleaning supplies cupboard. Oh no. No floor washing stuff. Panic hits. Look around with panicked look-on-face. Yes!! I've got it - dishwashing liquid (earth friendly of course) and the floor comes up a treat. Crisis averted. So in honour of clean kitchen floors, here is a picture of my dream kitchen, complete with clean floors - courtesy of a posting a while ago from Design*Sponge.

Take a deep breath.............

I've been putting this off for many days, weeks, here we go. My first blog post. No photos today (i think that's my first mistake!) - just a few words and a bit of a plan.
This is not going to be about how many bottoms I wiped or what I had for lunch, just a place to pass on stuff that I pick up along my way - with a "green" environmentally-aware bent to it. And now I've put a "mama's blog" tab on my web page, I better write something!
