E: Eco-living!

Welcome to E day with the Housewives! If you've followed my posts in the past, you've probably caught on that in addition to being a giant SF/Fantasy nerd, I'm also a huge penny-pinching eco-geek. I like to keep my house as earth-friendly as I can, but on that strict budget I keep that means getting thrifty and choosy about the eco-solutions we find. Who can afford solar panels to run the 10 computers in our house, anyway??

Fortunately for us home bean counters, the good folks with the UK magazine "Good to be Home" compiled a fabu infographic with 50 ways to go green at your home without spending extra. Sometimes without spending a single dime!

50 ways your Home can save the Earth infographic

So what are YOUR favorite ways to stay green and save money at your home?


  1. Nicely done! Love the thorough graphic! Fun and educational :)

  2. I started vermiculture about 10 years ago. Now almost all of my family, including nieces and nephews have worm bins.

    1. I've always wanted to start one, but we keep not doing it. We're going to have to take the plunge :-)

  3. Well, I've decided to NOT get a dishwasher. Yeah, just another white good to eventually wind up in landfill somewhere. But, I've figured out some useful things to do while doing the dishes ... podcasts anyone?

    Really like this post :)

  4. J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge - where I am part of Arlee Bird's A to Z Ambassador Team.
    April is here and I'm excited about it. Best of luck to us both on meeting our goals of posting and hopping to other blogs.
    My blog has a giveaway. There's a bonus a to z challenge each day to encourage people to visit more stops.
    Tonight's #azchat was super fun!
    I've never heard of Soap Nuts. But, sure enough, there it is on Amazon. Interesting.


Thanks for stopping by the House!
