Debbie's actions


De-Clutter My Home

I will de-clutter, clean, and donate or recycle unneeded items in my home.




I will write down three things every day for two weeks that I am grateful for, or send one email every day thanking or praising someone.



Use Reusable Bags

I will not accept any disposable bags when making purchases.

    I ended up on the road much of this time and just recorded my activities. I did remember to take my bags for produce, bread, and bagels. Felt rather strange at first but then it was ok. I recorded gratitude (3 each) twice a day (morning and night). Made such a difference with my attitude in general. Very worthwhile! Decluttering was less successful but did eliminate some things.

    I'm hoping I can record everything tomorrow. Have been on the road.

    So today I decided to buy my bagels at the Bagel Factory instead of at the grocery store. Brought my own bags. Had to cut them at home but no problem. Good thing the Bagel Factory is on my way home from the grocery store !

    I've been keeping a gratitude journal. I check in with it twice a day. Amazing how it has really given me a more positive view of life.

    Day 3:  So, it looks like my message today disappeared. Here it goes again. It's early but I've already written down my gratitude. I found a book called, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Decluttering has begun but this book is next on my reading list. Adding Bagel Factory to my errands and bringing my own bag rather than getting them at the grocery store.

    So excited! Today is Day 1 of the EcoChallenge... Gratitude recorded. Decluttering in progress. Bags waiting. I carry one with me at all times (attached to my purse). My challenge this year is to take my own bags to the bakery when I buy bread and bagels. I usually re-use my produce and grocery bags. Have fun everyone!

    I'm looking forward to starting this challenge next week. Already have my bread and bagel bags. Using a gratitude journal. My water carbonator just became unsafe. Trying to find an ethical one to replace it.

    So, I just posted on Facebook encouraging my FB family and friends to join. Not sure if that results in any points. I'm looking forward to creating a de-cluttering strategy. Need to deal with home, storage, and garage. Little by little... day by day... it will happen!

    I know my challenges sound easy and simple but I really want to have these things as part of my life. I already take my own bag BUT I want to take a bag to the bakery when I buy bread every week and go to the Bagel Factory with my own bag. I also want to use my produce bags rather than forget them when I go grocery shopping. Grateful, de-cluttering, and bags... I can do this!
