Brown Paper Packages

What a lovely surprise I found on my doorstep yesterday. Julie from Towards Sustainability has a 500th post giveaway and I won and my prize arrived. Brown paper packages tied up with string really are one of my favourite things – thanks Julie.

When I opened it looked so lovely, everything was arranged just so.

There were so many things – books, gardening gloves, heaps of seeds, chocolate (yum) and some grocery bags. It is so inspiring and motivating. The books look really good, I have almost finished reading my current book and will move onto one of these next.

My motivation does ebb and flow but when it comes to sustainable living it doesn’t take much to get me going again.
Often reading about other people’s lives is the best way to be inspired. You know that if other people are doing it, so can you. I read a few blogs on a regular basis and they all inspire me to continue my journey towards a simple life. Let’s face it, sometimes it is hard to say no to that little consumer voice that says I really do need that new pair of shoes and hand bag even though I rarely go out. Reading these blogs regularly help me stay on track.

Here are some of the blogs I read, I hope you can be inspired by us and in turn inspire others.

Thanks for the link! I have been reading through your blog with interest. Great job on the electricity reduction. I was pleased to see your post on chicken stock - coincidentally I'm posting on stock tomorrow morning! Such a simple way to eat well, frugally.
