These days we're leading a pretty thrifty existence, not just because it's cheaper for us, but because it's better for everyone in the long term. as someone who has always had a distaste for wastefulness, i've come to loathe the way we consume and discard pretty much everything in our lives so rapidly.
Pete and i have never really been into owning 'stuff' - filling the apartment with junk and gadgets and brand new everything. what's the point? seems a little soulless to me, brand new stuff just doesn't have that history of second hand alternatives, or that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you made something yourself.
With that said, i decided to share with you a few of the things i'm doing to be a little less wasteful, a little more thrifty and a lot more inventive....
