What more can I do to my house that doesn't cost a butt load of money that will make it more sustainable? What does that mean anyway?
I was washing the dishes last night - I do use the dishwasher but I also wash by hand when I'm cooking because often the pots and pans/measuring cups/measuring spoons need to be re-used. There is only one sink with the plastic tub in it. A lot of water is wasted! Remember back on Memorial Day weekend when the basement sink drain clogged and I couldn't drain any water down the kitchen sink? I saved all the water in that plastic tub and every few minutes would walk outside and water various plants with it. It was a big pain in the butt to do that but every day I realize how much water is wasted. Especially since we are going into what seems like day 1000 without rain. So what do I do? There was an article years ago in the Washington Post about a couple who had rigged up all sorts of pipes and drains to capture gray water - from sinks and laundry. Has anyone does this? How can I efficiently use my dish water and sink?
I also need a new kitchen floor - what should I get?
I need to get back on track to participate in Blog challenges. Like these:
What else can I write about?
