New Year...New Resolution.... New Move....

Well 2013 snuck up like a thief in the night... the holidays flew by in a blink of an eye.  I decided for my new years resolution to give something new a try. I hate to admit this, but this Oregonian is not so environmentally friendly when it comes to paper towels. Between cooking and cats, I have been known to go through a roll in two days. Not only is this just awful for the environment, but it is also super expensive.  $3.99 for two rolls of the cheap stuff.

I decided to give dishcloths a try. Target sells 6 packs of dishcloths for about $3.50. I bought a basket to place near the washing machine and my goal is to reduce my use of paper towels significantly. I do have cats and dogs, so I am not quite ready to give them up completely. But I'm excited to see how this works.

2013 also brought this Urban Gardener another change in location. In March I'll be leaving my current town home (my landlord wants it back) for most likely an apartment. I hate to leave a yard for a balcony, but it must be done at this point. I'm hoping soon to find myself in North Carolina and on several acres, but for now, it is going to be a balcony. I am really not sure how I'm going to fit all of my plants on a balcony. It is going to take some unique out of the box thinking.

I hope everyone had a great Holiday season and wonderful New Year!
