Tonight's post is a sequel...I figure they make money and fame in Hollywood so I jumped on the bandwagon. First we must take a trip backwards in time. Four weeks ago I began a busy three weeks to the point that we went back to the basics; everyone was fed, bathed regularly, and mostly rested. On those kind of days, those three accomplishments earn me accolades, inner peace the title of Mom. So, today I finished the clean up from all that, YEA!!! While cleaning the living room, I made a happy discovery that continued my thought process from yesterday's "Almost Most Things" post. The truth is that at times frugalness slaughters all my other aspirations.
Case in point...Exhibit A: the result of refilling a cleaning supply
Yes it is certainly incriminating evidence for a person who proposes to not use chemicals. Here's the extenuating circumstances. I married my husband, D, in happiness and health and large windex refill. I figure that the energy and environmental impact primarily occurred with manufacturing. Yes, I can make my own cleaners (more on that later I promise), but I flinch at even the idea of wasting. So, today I want to celebrate a milestone. I refilled the spray bottle for the last time and I recycled the refill container. I pronounce Frugal Cheap victorious over all other factors especially being green.
The confession...I have a weakness for anything frugal or chocolate. The word "free" makes me as giddy as a schoolgirl. If you want to see sublime happiness give me free chocolate.
