Thinking About Less

 Less is best!?  We all tend to go overboard on most things in life.  Maybe we all need to start thinking LESS!!  Less isn't a bad thing at all.  It can save your health and it can save money and it can save the environment.  It is time to look around and find out how LESS will work in your life!

We all know less STUFF seems to make our lives and our homes more manageable.  You have less stress with less junk in your home.  It is calming and serene.

Less EATING can help us manage our health.  Not many out there who couldn't lose a pound or two.  Smaller servings and one helping is sufficient most of the time.  Remember meat servings shouldn't be any larger than a fist.  Meat shouldn't be a main course, but a side like everything else.  Less fatty and junk food is healthy as well.  Eating too much has become a global problem and a global health problem.  We often eat out of boredom and truly 3 meals a day is not necessary - it is a habit.
Break those bad habits and get a healthier body and save money and resources.

Use LESS water!!!!  We are so wasteful of our water resources.  Never wash dishes with the faucet running.  Catch extra water for plants, animals or drinking when waiting for water to heat up.  Think of catching extra water when showering to flush or use on gardens, etc.  DRIPS are extremely wasteful.  A single drip of a faucet - dripping once a second - wastes thousands of gallons of water a year!!!!!!

Fixing that drip could be as simple as replacing the inner washer or you may need to replace the faucet.  They aren't that expensive and most can be replaced easily (I have done it myself).
If you are permitted - have rain barrels to catch nature's water.  That is so beneficial to gardens and plants and it works well for bird baths and animal bowls.
It can also be kept in jugs at the end of the season to use in an emergency, should municipal water go out.  You can also buy life straws and cleaning tablets that allows you to drink it in a emergency as well.

Use less POWER.  Electricity can be costly.  Think about alternative sources of light.  Lanterns, battery operated lights, solar, candles.
You can use solar lights from outdoors in a pinch if you lose power.  There are also lanterns that can be purchased that you keep near a window to draw solar power and they are great for evenings.

If you have an alternative heat source that is great as well.  Turn OFF lights when not in a room!!!!!!  There is no need to have lights on during the day and sure no need to have them on in an empty room.  Use a night light if necessary.
I have a neighbor that drives me nuts - they leave front & back porch lights on 24/7 as well as their basement light.  They use the basement for laundry only!  WHY would you need to leave on all the time?  I have a dusk to dawn light on my garage for security reasons -and I have flashlights I can use - no need for 24/7 lighting!!!!!!!!!
I open blinds during the day for light and heat from the sun - it is amazing how well it works.  All natural!

LESS A/C or HEAT - germs grow in hot environments.  The cooler your home the less germs that thrive.  I remember having a teacher in high school that always had a couple windows open even on the coldest days.  I thought he was crazy then - but he always told us about germs thriving.  It is true.  I use fresh air as much as possible in the spring/summer/fall.  I know some have allergies and can't do that - but most could.  If it gets upper 40's or 50's in winter I let fresh air in to air the house.  Keep the thermostat down a couple degrees in the winter and only use A/C if necessary in summer - it is healthy and it saves a chunk of change.

Today my recommendation is LESS - TV, NEWS, FB, SOCIAL MEDIA!!!!!!!!  Those things have become toxic to our mental well being and to our society.   Turn them off!
Read a book, take a walk, learn a craft, commune with nature, de-clutter your home, porch sit, talk with others, pray, exercise, meditate, listen to music............anything but soaking in hatred and toxic information.

Use and buy less PACKAGING.  We are so bad about recycling.  Look for items that have less plastic packaging.  Buy loose items instead of packaged items.  Buy larger packages and breakdown at home into glass or freezer or share with others.  Figure out new uses for paper or cardboard (most can be easily recycled).  Use your own shopping bags when permitted.  Make net produce bags to use at the store - they weigh basically nothing and you can use over and over and launder. (I keep those mesh bags from the produce dept.. and reuse)
Less packaging saves money (yes you pay for that packaging), save the environment and just makes good sense.

So yep - LESS can be MORE!!!!!
Using less can mean more money in your pocket, it can mean being heathier, it can mean more natural resources available for all,  it can mean less garbage on the earth, it can mean a prettier and healthier earth......... it can mean so much MORE of everything!

Start a new habit this year and use LESS of everything if you can.

I was so wrecked that my company fired me simply because i did not obliged to their terms, so they hacked into my system and phone and makes it so difficult to get any other job, i did all i could but things kept getting worse by the day that i couldn’t afford my 3 kids fees and pay my bills.

  2. Cheryl this is such a good post. I learned a few things from it. I can't say I'm known for frugality necessarily, but I know that I am aware of not being wasteful and work on that all the time. I do TOTALLY ONE HUNDRED PERCENT EMPHATICALLY agree with you about cutting out social media and even the "news." I don't need to sit and listen to people lie to me, or watch the tragic and ever more ludicrous events unfolding. I'd rather hold my cat and my dog, and listen to Max McLean read the New Testament on Bible Gateway. xoxo

  4. There are lots of little ways to waste resources. I totally agree with you about reducing how much we eat. We both feel better if we don't eat as much, especially too late in the day. Miss Jenny the Pirate is spot on...it's better to hold a beloved furbaby and read the Scriptures.

    1. Yes, she got it right on both things.
      I have really been trying to eat less and it has started to make a difference. I feel better and have lost a couple pounds so far!

  5. That was an awesome post. And for those of you who turn your t.v. off, remember if it's not on a power saver bar, unplug it. You can google how much power most appliances use when on and off. We found out that our t.v. was a power pig on and off.Here is an informative site...https://blog.homestars.com/common-phantom-energy-appliances/
    We read our electric meter every day and record the daily usage on our calendar. When the usage is up for no good reason we have found lights left on in garage or attic. We enjoy keeping our number as low as possible because that power may come from burning coal thus contributing to carbon pollution. We are not the only ones to pay for convenience; the planet pays.

    1. Very true about the TV sets. I also unplug any small appliance when not in use - just for safety safe. I have heard of too many toasters and coffee makers starting fires plugged in and not in use.
      I have only been in my attic twice in 34 years - so no light there. My garage is on a separate meter. I get notices all the time with analysis of wattage compared to neighbors - I am always low.
      Yes we hurt much in our own disregard of things.

  6. I don't do a lot of social media...I have completely stopped one blog because of him always running this one guy's commentary. I won't go into it here...lets just say I miss his photos but was not worth it to see the lies and be made mad and upset every week.

    I do some FB and blog, of course. And find a lot of enjoyment on instagram...though as I have come back to it, seems like I see so many ads that it is leaving me frustrated. I need to research if there is a way to stop them.

    I read an article in Guide Posts I believe it was, and this one woman had 7 dresses all the same, one for each day of the week. That way she spent no time at all wondering what she was going to wear. I thought that was a different idea. But I don't spend much time debating what to wear anyway....I have shirts that I have been wearing since 2010. I have a lot more than that. Some from Good Will that I had had some years before Roger's stroke, and they are still some of my favorite shirts.

  7. Hello Guys!!! I am Shantella I live in Ohio USA I’m 28 Years old, am so happy I got my blank ATM card from Mr Ben . My blank ATM card can withdraw $4,000 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have withdrawn about $10,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it because it is blank just your PIN will be on it, it is not traceable and now I have money for business, shopping and enough money for me and my family to live on.I am really glad and happy i met Mr Ben because I met Five persons before him and they could not help me. But am happy now Mr Ben sent the card through DHL and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him right now, he is giving it out for small fee to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught or traced. I’m happy and grateful to Mr Ben because he changed my story all of a sudden. The card works in all countries that is the good news Mr Ben email address is accessatmhackingcompany@gmail.com  !!

  10. INSTEAD OF GETTING A LOAN Check out these blank ATM cards today!!

    My name is Oliver from New york. A successful business owner and father. I got one of these already programmed blank ATM cards that allows me withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 30 days.

I must be sincere to you, when i first saw the advert, I believed it to be illegal and a hoax but when I contacted Mr Oscar White, he confirmed to me that although it is illegal, nobody gets caught while using these cards because they have been programmed to disable every communication once inserted into any Automated Teller Machine(ATM).
