Hopefully challenging myself to a particular focus on electricity and shopping my own pantry this month will increase my chances of success with my resolution to spend less, save more in 2011. And it's not taking on too much with these types of challenges...even if every day doesn't breed success, the days that do will add up.
How'm I doin' so far?
- There's a load of laundry out hanging on the line.
- Lunch was veggie soup cooked entirely on the shelf of our woodburner. (No woodburner? A crockpot would turn the trick.)
- Pictured above are some onions slowly simmering in butter and olive oil (in the same pan the soup was cooked in). No prob if it takes all afternoon for the onions to caramelize, since this is a step-ahead for a future meal.
- And I air-dried my hair. Yeah, it looks air-dried, but I'm not going anywhere today.
Although I value quick cooking and having good hair days, I do NOT value spending money on one-time-use products like electricity!
If you vowed to spend less, save more, how 'you doin' so far?
