The comments section is, in my opinion, the best part of blogging.
I have learned so much from all of you. After detailing how we’ve simplified or gotten by with less stuff, I am often given the gift of the “next level” to aim for or a useful tip on how to simplify or save even more.
Last week it was on my fridge post. While I love an empty fridge, I had no idea it was making my fridge run inefficiently and impacting our electricity bill. Several of you pointed this out – thank you.
Now, as we work our way through the meals I batch cook on Sundays, I clean out the empty Pyrex containers, fill them with water, and put them back in the fridge. Excited to see what this does for our electricity usage.
We raised $305 for Feeding America! 278 comments on the post and then another 27 on Facebook that I added to the total. 2440 meals for families struggling with hunger. Thank you many times over for commenting and urging others to leave a comment to help those in need.
I have a big goal to share with you.
It’s one of those life list goals: I want my family to donate 10% of our gross income to charity.
We are not there yet but I hope that at some point in the next 8-10 years we will be. That seems like a long way off but slow and steady, right?
